FSC® Friday is an international celebration of responsible forestry and this year it takes place on Friday 27th September.
The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) is an international, non-governmental organization dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests. When you see the FSC logo, you can be confident that your purchase benefits the world’s forests.
Green Building Store has long been a supporter of FSC timber certification route and in 2005 our Ecoplus range became the first UK manufactured window range to use certified FSC® 100% timber. Our Ecocontract, Ecocontract ULTRA ranges are also made using FSC® 100% timber.
Certification by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) indicates that the wood used to make the product comes from a forest which is well managed according to strict environmental, social and economic standards. The forest of origin has been independently inspected and evaluated according to the principles and criteria for forest management agreed and approved by the Forest Stewardship Council. FSC is an international, non-profit association whose membership comprises environmental and social groups and progressive forestry and wood retail companies working in partnership to improve forest management worldwide.
