Svedbergs Group uses wood certified according to sustainable forestry standards. This promotes UN Sustainable Development Goals 12 – Responsible consumption and production, and 15 – Life on land.
Deforestation affects the climate by reducing carbon sequestration and increasing the risk of biodiversity loss. Voluntary forest certification is one of several important tools that promotes sustainable forestry around the world and protects forest animals and plants. By using wood from sustainable forestry operations, natural habitats and biodiversity are promoted. This also helps to reduce global warming by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Environmentally certified wood
The certification of forestry and labelling of forest products proves that the products the Group produces and sells come from forests that are managed sustainably. Svedbergs Group has suppliers of wood and wood products that operate in Europe. All of these suppliers are evaluated, and are required to meet the Group’s requirements for sustainable forestry and to use only wood from certified sources. Suppliers must be environmentally certified to be approved by Svedbergs Group. To verify that the wood content comes from certified forests, it must be traceable throughout the production chain. This guarantees that the labelling delivers what it promises.
