Exotic Hardwoods & Veneers is pleased that we have received the Scientific Certification Systems Chain-of-Custody Certificate (SCS-COC-000896).

FSC is a forest conservation program whose goal is "to recognize the highest levels of performance in ... environmental protection and social responsibility ... and to stimulate continuous improvement in sustainable development." They accredit third-party certification bodies such as SCS to conduct assessments of forestry operations and companies that sell lumber or products made from wood. These assessments are conducted using regional representatives and indicators that are based on the FSC Principles and Criteria.

Forest Stewardship Council

is the world's leading forest certification system

FSC's system ensures that forests are harvested and maintained in a well-managed manner, and that recreational, social, economic and aboriginal needs are considered. FSC is the only forest certification system approved by the United States Green Building Council for use as "certified wood" in the Council's Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED™) Rating System.

Additional information on the Forest Stewardship Council is on their website: www.fscus.org. Information on the United States Green Building Council is at www.usgbc.org.

FSC-approved substrates such as MDF and Particle Board are available, as well as FCS-Certified Fire-Rated No-Added-Formaldehyde MDF.
