Thanks to our comprehensive PEFC and FSC certification, we already meet the highest standards for sustainability and transparency. Nevertheless, we welcome various initiatives which aim to examine and promote the sustainability and transparency of companies. These assessments, which also include non-certified and non-sustainable companies, allow us to once again underscore our pioneering position in the overall market environment.
We regularly place in the top ranks of the SPOTT » transparency assessment for the timber industry. But also in the annual ratings by the Carbon Disclosure Project », we demonstrate that we are among the industry leaders in sustainability.
The European Union and the United States have also recognised illegal logging as one of the major threats to our planet. The US Lacey Act and the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) prevent the import of illegal timber products into these two important markets. These rules oblige forest companies to respect the legal requirements in the country of origin of the wood. Naturally, Precious Woods meets all these requirements and, with its voluntary certification, exceeds them by far.
We welcome these legally binding instruments, which also force non-certified actors to respect at least the legal minimum standards. Illegally operating forestry companies can, however, still circumvent these regulations by switching to other major markets. From our experience, we also know that legal compliance is not always sufficient to guarantee sustainable forestry and thus the conservation of forests. We therefore strictly adhere to our FSC and PEFC dual certification.
