We believe that every company has a duty to be responsible to the environment. Today more than ever. Wood, if it is sourced correctly is one of the most renewable resources in the world. Other kinds of man-made floors are produced in mines or factories requiring huge amounts of energy which thus emit more greenhouse gases.

Flooring

We use wood that is planted for the production of natural rubber as the base for our products. This means the tree is not removed from the forest nor cut down for timber. It is only felled when it has to be replaced towards the end of its natural productive life. This is a 100% plantation species in Asia as it only occurs in the wild in Brazil. Thus 75% of our products are renewable.

For the precious wood that is used for the face, we take every care to ensure that we purchase only legally sourced timber.

Doors, Shutters and other products

Trojan only purchase from companies that are FSC certified (Forest Stewardship Council) FSC is a global, not for profit organization dedicated to the promotion of responsible forest management worldwide.

Our suppliers must be able to demonstrate CoC (Chain of Custody) for the timber used in their finished products. The objective of CoC is to be able to trace back the supply of the timber, ie
Final product producer > Timber Wholesaler > Timber Mill > Legal forest

Therefore, you can choose a Trojan timber based product with absolute confidence that you have made the right choice, for you and for the planet.
