FSC QUALITY MARK
In order to achieve sustainable forestry management a unique
collaboration has been realized. International environmental
and development organizations have got together with
businesses and local communities and set up the Forest

account the interests of the local communities and forest
workers. A comprehensive inspection system ensures that wood
with the FSC quality mark really does come from well-managed

awarded with the "Chain of Custody " certificate. This
certificate gives you the guarantee that the origin of the "FSC

Zwolle to which we are affiliated under licence agreement
