Responsible Sourcing

A major part of our sourcing activities are conducted in so-called risk countries. It is therefore our responsibility to ensure that we do not directly or indirectly benefit from, contribute to, endorse, or in any way facilitate violations of human or labour rights.

As a global company, we do business in countries with diverse business and cultural practices, as well as legal frameworks, regarding the respect and uphold of labour and human rights.

The European Union (EU) requires companies to implement a due dilligence system to reduce the risk of sourcing illegal timber. We ensure that all our products meet the EUTR requirements.

We will gladly help you with further advice and guidance on dealer requirements.
