Forest Stewardship Council® has a mission to improve global forest management. In the worldwide fight against deforestation, FSC has developed 10 principles focusing on legal compliance, labour standards, indigenous people’s rights, community relations, environmental benefits, and values, planning and monitoring and conservation efforts. As a furniture manufacturer, we understand the importance of sustainable forestry. All timber used in products complies with the UK and EU Timber Regulations to ensure no illegal logging involvement. We don’t want to just stop there, though, which is why we have obtained the FSC certification, to ensure that we are contributing to global sustainable forest management and active biodiversity replanting schemes.
