Raw Materials from Responsibly Managed Forests
One of Setra's most important sustainability aspects is that the raw material comes from responsibly managed forests. With harvesting comes a responsibility to manage the forest in a way that considers the conservation values of the forests and surrounding nature.
We only use raw material from suppliers that are certified by FSC® or PEFC™, the world's largest forest management certification systems with standards of forest management and traceability (Chain of Custody). All the timber Setra buys is certified or controlled y a certified supplier.
Setra's sawmills and processing units are certified according to PEFC™ and FSC® Chain of Custody standards and according to the FSC standard for controlled wood. With a Chain of Custody certificate, we can show that the wood comes from responsibly managed forests and has a controlled origin, it is the link between the certified forest and the certified end product.
The timber which is not certified is checked and fulfills the requirements of the FSC® Controlled Wood and PEFC™ Controlled Sources. It also meets the requirements of the European Timber Regulation.
