FSC®

The Forestry Stewardship Council® (FSC) is an international non-profit making organization founded to support the world’s forests.

Weldon holds the FSC chain of custody certification to use the FSC trademarks on wood flooring and sub-flooring as FSC 100%, FSC Mix or FSC Recycled.

Our certificate Registration Code has been renewed until December 2020. Confirmation can be found at http://www.fsc-info.org

Chain of Custody certification ensures that FSC materials and products have been checked at every stage of processing, so customers purchasing products sold with FSC claims can be confident that they are genuinely FSC certified. Becoming certified is a lengthy process and requires regular re-assessment. It shows that Weldon complies with the highest social and environmental timber and timber product standards on the market.

FSC is recognized by BREEAM, the world’s leading design and assessment method for sustainable buildings, with the increasing importance of responsible sourcing of materials in construction. BRE Global (incorporating BREEAM) mission is to “Protect People, Property and the Planet”.

Environmentally appropriate forest management ensures that the harvest of timber and non-timber products maintains the forest’s biodiversity, productivity and ecological processes.

Socially beneficial forest management helps both local people and society at large to enjoy long term benefits and also provides strong incentives to local people to sustain the forest resources and adhere to long-term management plans.

Economically viable forest management systems means that forest operations are structured and managed so as to be sufficiently profitable, without generating financial profit at the expense of the forest resource, the ecosystem, or affected communities.
