Setra's aim is to contribute to deforestation with the lowest possible environmental impact and minimum amount of damage to the remaining trees. Below you can find all of our certificates and what requirements must be met in order to become certified in various areas.
There are two systems for certification of forests and forest products - PEFC and FSC®. These are not interchangeable and Setra is certified to both systems. In 2012, 39 percent of our raw sourced timber material was certified according to either FSC® or PEFC but also the raw material that is not certified, meets the requirements of the FSC® and PEFC.
All of Setra's units are certified according to ISO 14001. ISO 14001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system. An environmental management system can be seen as a tool to organize the environmental work in a company. It encompasses everything in the daily work that affects, influences or may affect the external environment.
ISO 9001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). Organizations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.
All of Setra's drying processes meet the requirements for heat treatment of wood (KD 56°C/30 min) and can therefore deliver sawn timber to manufacturers that wish to produce packaging according to ISPM 15.
Some of Setra's units are also approved for the manufacturing of packaging according to the demands in ISPM 15.
