Niels Larsen recognise that as a major consumer of timber products, we have an obligation to ensure that our supply chain practise sustainable forestry.
Sustainable forestry means managing forests to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This is achieved by practising a land stewardship ethic that integrates the reforestation, managing, growing, nurturing and harvesting of trees for our products with the conservation of soil, air, water quality and wildlife habitat.
We insist that our major timber suppliers are members of the Timber Trade Federation and are signatories of the Forests Forever sustainable purchasing policy. We agree that independent certification is the most effective manner in which to assure that sustainable practices are carried out throughout our supply chain. We therefore work continually with our suppliers to minimise our impact on the environment and where possible we advocate the use of certified timber.
