AMAZONAS uses FSCTM-certified wood from responsibly managed forestries for its products.

The mission of the Forest Stewardship CouncilTM (FSCTM) is to promote environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world's forests.

The FSCTM label on a product is a clear indicator that the product originated from responsibly managed forestry. Products with the FSCTM label ensure that forests are used in accordance with the social, economic and ecological requirements of today's and future generations.

In order to guarantee sustainable forestry, our suppliers work under the following criteria (list not exclusive):

• Conservation of large parts of biotope wood to conserve the natural habitats for (rare) plants, animals and fungi
• Avoidance of clear-cutting
• Natural forest rejuvenation
• Precautionary measures to protect the environment
• No use of chemical fertilisers and biocides
• Planned management (balance between planned wood use and sustainability)
• Humane and socially acceptable working conditions for employees
• Compliance with claims of ownership and use rights of the forests

Why is sustainable forest management so important?

Diverse animals, plants and fungi have lived together and developed over thousands of years. They have formed a stable unit which is particularly resistant to natural influences.
Only human influences can throw this balance and cause rare living creatures and plants to die out.
To prevent this AMAZONAS suppliers work under FSCTM criterias and run their forests sustainably.

So by buying AMAZONAS products you are helping us support sustainable forest use.

Look for FSCTM certified products. You can recognise our FSCTM-certified products by the FSCTM label.
