Sustainability in production
timura Holzmanufaktur GmbH feels obligated to abide by the principle of sustainability and has enshrined this in its philosophy.
As an FSC and PEFC-certified company, timura exclusively processes wood produced through responsible and sustainable forestry and takes a great deal of care to abide by the associated guidelines when procuring raw wood.
Significance of the FSC certificate: The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international non-profit organisation that aims to guarantee sustainable forestry.
Certification involves maintaining as well as improving the economic, ecological and social aspects of forestry operations. The system should also help to avoid disputed wood sources through compliance with the FSC’s Controlled Wood Standards and ensure fair purchasing guidelines.
The certification relates to the purchasing of raw materials, the outsourcing of wood drying operations, the manufacture of thermally modified wood and the sale of said wood.
Significance of the PEFC certificate: The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC) is an international forest certification scheme. Its goal is to ensure and continuously improve sustainable forest management, all the while guaranteeing ecological, social and economic standards.
The PEFC system has developed product chain certification for the wood’s journey from the forest to the consumer.
timura Holzmanufaktur GmbH is certified throughout its entire product chain, i.e. from the purchasing process, to production, to the sale of thermally modified woods. Further certificates can be found under "The wood manufactory" following certifications.
