PEFC proof of origin
We are buying our logs exclusively from forests, which are managed in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way – a forestry, which at the same time allows for logging, environmental protection and recreational use and thus makes sure that our forests with all their vital functions are preserved for future generations. PEFC-certified for your reassurance.
PEFC – what is that?
PEFC certification is a transparent and independent control system for safeguarding a sustainable and thus exemplary forest cultivation. All forest owners may participate voluntarily. PEFC is also a monitoring system for proof of origin: from certified forests via the wood processing companies to the finished product on the shelf. With a certified forest area of over 200 million hectares, PEFC is the world’s most widespread forestry seal. Since the foundation of PEFC Germany in 1999, over 7 million hectares have been certified – about two-thirds of Germany’s total forest area. The most important standards are: promotion of mixed species forestry in accordance with local conditions; ban on clear-cutting; non-use of herbicides. Independent certifying companies monitor the observance of these requirements at regular intervals.
