Our extensive product portfolio has always been derived from sources certified by the Forest Stewardship Council ® (FSC ®) wherever possible, making them environmentally friendly products that are responsibly sourced.
Now, after a thorough auditing process, we’ve been awarded certification by the FSC. So you can be confident you’re not only investing in the best possible design and the highest quality, but also in products that are as innovatively sustainable as is possible.
The team here at James Tobias take our environmental responsibilities seriously, so we’re delighted that our hard work has won such prestigious recognition. This is an outstanding achievement at a time when environmental priorities mean that we must be more mindful than ever in choosing and using our diminishing natural resources.
The Forest Stewardship Council is an international, not-for-profit and multi-stakeholder organisation. Set up in 1993, the FSC promotes the responsible management of the world’s forests. For more than 20 years, the FSC has been working hard to ensure that the world’s forests are managed in an environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable manner.
98% of our products incorporate FSC certified materials and we are committed to raising that figure even further through a commitment to continuous research and innovative product development.
So, even if some people believe that good design comes at a cost, we’re ensuring that it doesn’t cost the earth.
Our standard products will now be supplied with an FSC claim, meaning that you can be assured that they are made with wood that comes from FSC certified forests and other controlled sources. Controlled Wood is material that can be mixed with certified material during manufacturing FSC Mix products. This has enabled manufacturers to manage low and fluctuating supplies of FSC certified forest products, while creating demand for FSC certified wood. Controlled Wood is FSC-approved but it does not come from FSC certified forests.
This is great news for all our customers, and even more so for those whose buying decisions are led by environmental concerns. If you are committed to working with an FSC Certified manufacturer, we would be delighted to help.
This new certification (licence code FSC-C126668) is in addition to our continued and on going investment in environmentally friendly systems and processes.
