FSC® and PEFC™ Certification

Responsible Manufacturing at Vtec

Sustainability is a key consideration in projects today. We recognise the value of sourcing responsibly and do our utmost to follow sustainable practices as far as possible throughout the manufacturing process. For example:

  • We source raw materials locally where possible
  • We collaborate to optimise deliveries to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible
  • We have energy efficient LED lighting in the warehouse and offices, with occupation sensors in ancillary areas
  • We burn wood waste to heat our production and warehouse facilities
  • We use recycled boxes to send out samples and orders, and all our delivery pallets are made locally

FSC® Certification

We are FSC® certified (FSC® C160047).

The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is a global, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the promotion of responsible forest management worldwide. FSC defines standards based on agreed principles for responsible forest stewardship that are supported by environmental, social, and economic stakeholders. To learn more, visit www.fsc.org.

Responsible sourcing of wood can benefit construction projects in many ways. Wood is more carbon and energy efficient in comparison to other building materials. However, wood can originate from unsustainable forest management practices which can undermine its benefits. This risk can be mitigated by sourcing FSC certified wood. FSC is the world’s most trusted sustainable forest management solution that adds environmental, social and economic benefits to construction projects.

Some products in our Slats, Beams and Acoustics range are available as FSC Certified. Please talk to us about your specific requirements prior to quotation.

PEFC™ Certification

We are PEFC™ certified (INT-PEFC/COC-002119).
