FSC Certification

D1DC are pleased to announce that we are now FSC® certified. This means that all specified wood products that we use in manufacture are sourced from well-managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits. Our FSC certification means that upon request we can now offer products that are sourced and manufactured using the FSC guidelines.
 
The Forest Stewardship Council® is the worlds most respected forest certification scheme and is described on their website -
“FSC is a global, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the promotion of responsible forest management worldwide. We enable businesses and consumers to make informed choices about the forest products they buy, and create positive change by engaging the power of market dynamics.”

D1DC is Chain of Custody FSC certified. Our FSC licence code is FSC-C113172. This applies to manufacturers, processors and traders of FSC certified products. It ensures all products along the production chain are FSC certified and that each stage of manufacture it confirms that FSC wood is kept separate from uncertified products.

This certification has benefits for forests, their owners, local communities, businesses and consumers. There is a growing demand in the industry for FSC certified products from well-managed forests. FSC works with forest owners and managers to create an incentive to follow good environmental and social practices. This brings direct benefits to the forests, enabling workers rights to be protected, protecting bio diversity and looking after particularly important areas. All this also ensures the end product holds the FSC principles and environmental benefits for the consumer.
