International Panel Products and the Environment
International Panel Products recognises that we have a responsibility to the environment, and endeavour to carry out every aspect of our business in ways which are as environmentally friendly as possible.
Our commitment to environmental policy is demonstrated by our FSC ® chain of custody (SA-COC-001305) which is awarded to Companies who can demonstrate that their products contain wood from well managed forests. This is an independent certification and International Panel Products has held chain-of-custody allowing us to sell FSC ® Certified Plywood and Timber Products as a part of our stock range since 2003.
In 2006 we were awarded PEFC ™ chain-of-custody (SA-PEFC/COC-001305) which enabled us to widen our stock-range of certified products. As an ISO9001:2008 approved organisation, International Panel Products regularly appraise our suppliers to ensure their products and services meet the exacting standards we demand. In many cases we investigate a supplier’s environmental policy before a partnership can begin.
