PEFC is the world's largest organization for certification of sustainable forestry. Certification of forestry and environmental labeling of forest products is the forest industry's way of telling consumers that they produce products of forest raw materials that come from responsibly used forests. The PEFC label on a wood-based product shows that it is made from raw material that comes from forests that are used according to defined requirements for consideration of natural and cultural environments, social values and forest management. PEFC stands for "Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification" and the organization has members all over the world.
We want to leave behind something to be proud of. Therefore, we at Ljungberg Fritzoe take our environmental work very seriously.
When choosing suppliers and partners, we attach great importance to our working environment and its environmental aspects. We work to ensure that as many suppliers and products as possible are PEFC and FSC certified. In cases where the supplier is not certified, we must ensure that the product comes from responsible suppliers and that the product is produced with the least possible environmental impact. We strive for our products to be included in all Swedish environmental databases.
We have a long tradition of delivering board material that we are proud of. We are mindful about our future and will always work to be at the forefront of offering the best products with the environment in focus.
FSC® stands for "Forest Stewardship Council®" and is an independent, international member organization that works for environmentally adapted, socially responsible and economically viable use of the world's forests.
