What does PEFC mean?


PEFC stands for "Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification".


Companies which are certified according to PEFC, show responsibility in handling with the raw material wood. 

80% of our wood also comes from PEFC-certified forests and therefore from demonstrably sustainable forestry, which fulfils strict environmental requirements. This certification ensures an active observance of the forests.
