For us at Vandenberg Hardhout BV the use of FSC certified wood is very important. By using FSC wood, we are helping to promote responsible forest management. FSC, the Forest Stewardship Council®, is an international organization that helps both local people and society to benefit from the forest resources in the long term.
Environmentally and social appropiate use of the forest means that the forest's productivity, biodiversity and ecological processes are maintained while harvesting the wood.
The basics for the wood to get the FSC certification is a set of 10 principles. When these principles are followed, the forest will be eligible for a certificate. Independent inspectors are controlling if the companies that harvest the forest are working up to these standards.
Vandenberghardhout solely imports FSC certified wood or from sources which are in the process to become FSC certified. You can find our hardwood types here
