FOREST STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL ©

We have the pleasure to announce you that we have been the first to receive FSC ® certification (Forest Stewardship Council® certificate) in automotive interior design world.

FSC ® directive:

The Forest Stewardship Council ® (FSC ®) is an independent, not for profit, non-government organisation based in Bonn, Germany. The mission of the Forest Stewardship Council is to support environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world's forests.

FSC ® develops, supports and promotes international, national and regional standards in line with its mission; evaluates, accredits and monitors certification bodies which verify the use of FSC ® standards; provides training and information; and promotes the use of products that carry the FSC ® logo.

FSC ® standard has been designed to allow companies to avoid trading in illegally harvested wood, wood harvested in violation of traditional and civil rights, wood harvested in forests where high conservation values are threatened by management activities, wood harvested in forests being converted to plantations or non-forest use, wood from forests in which genetically modified trees are planted.

Compliance with this standard allows companies to supply FSC ® Controlled Wood to FSC ® certified chain of custody companies for the purpose of mixing with FSC ® certified material. It allows companies to demonstrate that they are implementing best efforts to avoid the trade in illegally harvested timber, in support of the international Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) program. It allows companies to start implementing their own responsible sourcing policies.

This standard allows companies to greatly reduce the risk that they are trading in wood from unacceptable sources.
