Certifications

The Forest Stewardship Council

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification identifies products containing wood originating from forests that have been managed in a correct and responsible way, according to strict environmental, social, and economical standards.

The forest of origin has been controlled and evaluated in line with these standards (principles and guidelines of good forestry management), set and approved by the FSC by means of participation and accord among the interested parties.

The FSC is an international, independent, and non-profit NGO which includes among its members: environmentalist and social groups, autochthon communities, forest-owners, wood-working and trading companies, and scientists and technicians who team up to improve forest management worldwide. The group FSC-Italy operates in harmony with the international Forest Stewardship Council's objectives and mission.

The FSC has been set up with the purpose of certifying the eco-sustainable forestry management from an ecological, social, and economical point of view. The FSC is the one and only standard of certification incorporating environmental and social standards in forestry administration.

Forestry management actions certified by FSC standards are based on the accurate monitoring of a forest on a detailed management plan involving all interested parties. The felling of trees and consequential processing of logs is accurately and carefully performed to minimize the impact on the ecosystem and prevent social conflict. In the future, the achievement of a fully compatible system will be possible. Wooden products manufactured according to this system are granted the FSC certification as a guarantee of an eco-friendly, quality product.

Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification

The application of regulations within the technical document signed by North European wood manufacturers testifies that Listone Giordano contributes to the safeguard of original forestry ecosystems and does so by using raw materials originating from North European forests managed in an eco-friendly manner, and whose origin is assured and verifiable thanks to a certified PEFC Custody Chain.

PEFC is an independent non-profit international organization, whose aim is to promote the eco-sustainable management of forests on every level, and to contribute to the improvement of the image of wood manufacturers.
