Cotswold Panel Products are proud to announce their manufacturing facility in Honeybourne has just received the Chain of Custody certification from the Forest Stewardship Council™.
The FSC Certification system can help secure a long-term source of wood and other forest-based materials. Furniture in homes, offices and outdoor spaces is mainly made from wood, and for good reason. Wood is a popular material because of its versatility, durability and of course its aesthetics.
At Cotswold Panel Products, the majority of our bespoke products are FSC-certified. When customers choose to purchase an FSC-certified product, they help protect nature and the social conditions in the forests from which the wood originates. This means that no more wood is cut than what the forest can reproduce naturally. Animals, plants and other natural resources such as springs and streams are safeguarded. This also means that native and local populations are protected, and forestry workers are guaranteed proper economic conditions.
The demand for sustainable products is growing, as 80% of consumers who have bought or are looking for sustainable products say that the FSC label has a positive effect on their purchasing decisions (Source: FSC Global Market Survey 2018). FSC helps take care of forests and the people and wildlife who call them home and is recognised by WWF as the “hallmark of responsible forest management”.
