FSC Certification. After a rigorous compliance process Green-tech is now FSC certified.
Green-tech sells in excess of 1.5 million stakes and 15,000m3 of wooden Bark chippings each year. Their customers can now be assured that these are all FSC compliant and made from responsible sources.
FSC works to take care of the world’s forests for future generations. They set the standards for what is a responsibly managed forest, both environmentally and socially. When timber leaves an FSC-certified forest they ensure companies along the supply chain meet best practice standards.
Green-tech’s Purchasing Manager Tom Parker said,
“Becoming FSC certified has been important to us. It demonstrates that Green-tech complies to the highest social and environmental standards available in the market. Concern about the state of the world’s forests and timber resources is increasing and FSC provides our customers with a solution to the environmental and social issues faced. Using FSC certified wood will ensure forests will thrive for generations to come.”
The FSC certification adds to Green-tech’s long-standing history of committing to customer service and quality in delivery as well as focusing on environmental responsibilities. They have worked within the ISO framework of ISO 9001 & ISO 14001 standards and have been able to successfully demonstrate that they are committed to continuous improvement for both standards over the last seven years’.
With concern over depleting forests and sustainability Governments and businesses are increasingly specifying FSC certified products in their procurement programs. The FSC certification enables companies to access more environmentally sensitive markets, and demonstrates responsible business practices.
