CERTIFIED TIMBER – PEFC AND FSC®
About two-thirds of our purchases of timber logs come from certified forests in Denmark, Germany, Poland and Sweden. The forests are certified according to the internationally recognised certification schemes FSC® and PEFC. In general, we work consciously and actively on increasing the share of certified timber. The remaining logs come from uncertified forests in the same countries, where legal and sensible forestry is ensured by the national legislation in itself.
Since 2006, Junckers is CoC-certified (CoC = Chain of Custody) and is, therefore, entitled to sell products that are certified according to the PEFC scheme (SA-PEFC/COC-007649), and since 2010, according to the FSC® scheme (SA-COC-007649).
For trading products – which today account for less than 5% of Junckers’ revenue and are purchased globally – it is our aim to increase the share of suppliers that are certified.
EPD – environmental product declaration
Sustainability has always been a focal point at Junckers, and we know from consultants, developers and architects how important it is to provide transparency and traceability in relation to materials.
Therefore, in collaboration with Ramboll, we have completed EPDs, which evaluate the environmental impact of our solid hardwood floors and by this we can contribute to simplifying the work process in the selection of floors for a building to be sustainability certified.
LOOKING FOR OTHER CERTIFICATES OR BUILDING SCHEMES?
At Junckers we believe in sustainability and we support initiatives that improve environmental awareness. Complying with environmental legislation and environmental regulations is paramount to us and in areas where we see further possibilities of improvement, we strive to do more. We co-operate with internationally recognised certification schemes, such as FSC®, PEFC and deliver accreditation towards BREEAM, LEED & DGNB.
