The Forest Stewardship Council® (the FSC®) is an independent, non-governmental, non-profit making organisation established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests. They maintain standards which all of their certificate holders follow.
The FSC® is endorsed by major environmental charities including Greenpeace and the WWF® and provides assurance to purchasers of wood and paper products that they are helping promote the responsible management of forests.
What is Chain of Custody Certification? The certification process traces forest products through every link in the supply chain from the retailers back via manufacturers to the original responsible source. If, at any stage, the paper trail breaks down, the end product cannot be marketed as FSC® certified.
Customers can rest assured that the products supplied by Excel Timber Products which carry the FSC® logo, come from forests managed to meet social, economic and ecological needs. Like all FSC® certified suppliers we are independently audited at regular intervals to ensure that proper procedures are always followed.
