Paragon Engineered Timber Ltd Secures PEFC Chain Of Custody Certification
Paragon Engineered Timber Ltd, Neath, S. Wales has recently joined more than 10,000 companies around the world to have been awarded PEFC Chain of Custody certification. We invested in this rigorous assessment process to demonstrate our commitment to a sustainable future for the world’s forests. This certification provides assurances that Paragon Engineered Timber Ltd procures timber from sustainable, legal and traceable sources.
Chain of Custody certification is the process by which certified material can be traced from the forest to the end-user. It provides proof that the product, or product line, being sold is linked to legally managed and certified forests. Stringent PEFC standards track all timber products and wood fibre coming out of the forest to ensure that they originated in sustainably-managed forests. Chain of Custody documentation offers assurances that each stage of the supply chain has been monitored closely and audited according to independent, third-party verification. This unbroken link offers transparent proof that materials have been responsibly sourced.
Commenting on the award, Emma Bevan, Administrator said: “As Paragon Engineered Timber Ltd is committed to sourcing from responsibly-managed forests, we are therefore proud to demonstrate our support for sustainable forest management by being able to provide our customers with assurances that the material used to make our products can be traced back to forests certified to a credible, international certification standard such as PEFC’s.”
