Certification is the tool used to verify that a forest is sustainably managed and to connect the consumer with the sustainable origins of their products. Worldwide Timber Traders are certified to maintain the chain of custody (CoC) in the manufacturing and supply of PEFC™ products including; solid timbers, timber veneer, plywoods, laminates, MDF and more.
As well as providing assurance of sustainable practices, forest certification empowers consumers and companies to choose sustainably-sourced products, thereby allowing responsible forest owners to be rewarded.
This means; responsible businesses, public authorities, organisations and consumers alike can use their purchasing power to support the sustainable management of Australia’s forests.
