It’s no secret that the world is becoming more concerned with the practice of deforestation and the impact that it has, not only on the environment but nature itself. A somewhat positive that has however risen from this global issue is the awareness people are undertaking when choosing sustainable materials. Making this decision to understand where materials are sourced from before purchasing has rapidly become a norm, especially when it comes to using wood for your interior.
Aligning with the many green and naturist movements over recent years, the request for ethically sourced timber flooring has become a must. So much so, that the demand for FSC Certification in the flooring industry has seen a significant rise in the last decade. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international organisation established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests. So, in order to carry this FSC label, timber products must be verified as coming from a certified source.
Trojan Timbers is proud to offer 100% legally sourced products. Trojan can offer FSC certified, which we see as an asset to our company. Along with this, we can also produce E0 emission floor which, to put this in perspective, this is the rating you would need when packaging food.
We recognise our responsibility for assisting in protecting the environment by sourcing and working only with factories that have an accredited Environment Management System. These are companies who aim to prevent pollution, reduce consumption of resources and manage waste appropriately. To add to this, the chain of custody (CoC) certification reassures responsible management at all points in the supply chain; pretty much tracked from the forest right to our warehouse in Australia!
It’s safe to say that Trojan is an active stakeholder in ensuring we protect our environment whilst providing the best quality flooring to the Australian market. In doing this, we are supported by leading industry accreditations to give our customers the peace of mind that their flooring is indeed environmentally friendly whilst it continues to perform for years to come.
