FSC POLICY & PARTICIPATION
Gruppo Cordenons is well aware of the environmental impact of its activities and the importance of the ecological aspects of the production and sale of its products that directly affect the company's marketing and prestige, as well as the recognition and customer fidelity.
The particular attention paid to the supply and use of fibrous raw materials derived from forestry, the awareness of the influence that these activities have in safeguarding the world's forests and the recognition of the social, environmental and economic role that forests play, for present and future generations, have encouraged the company to carry out its commitment by adopting the strict standards of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) for responsible forest management.
The purpose of FSC is to promote a kind of forest management which is environmentally appropriate, beneficial from the social standpoint and satisfactory from the economic point of view.
The Company therefore has pledged to exclude from its trading activities the use of wood and fibres belonging to the following categories :
- Illegally cut timber;
- Timber cut in violation of traditional or civil rights;
- Timber coming from forest areas where high conservation values are threatened by management activities;
- Timber coming from forests that have been converted into plantations or other non-forest uses;
- Timber from forests in which genetically modified trees are grown;
Moreover, the company undertakes to implement a certification of origin that allows traceability of the fibres from raw materials to finished products, in compliance with the standards in force.
The Management provides the adequate means and resources to reach this objective through the set up of an appropriate management system, the careful evaluation of its suppliers, periodic staff training, awareness campaigns’, the spreading and the promotion of FSC® principles, the production and sale of FSC® certified and labelled products.
