Commitment to sustainable forest management is an essential part of our business and has led us to design and develop hi-tech semi-finished products that have obtained formal PEFC and FSC® acknowledgments.
FSC®: Responsible forest management and chain of custody.
Since the 90s, as a result of a growing awareness of the environmental problems, the FSC® and PEFC forest certificates are introduced to ensure that a forest is legally, sustainably and/or well managed.
In 2008 Nord Compensati is certified PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes) by the Pan-European Forest Certification Council that promotes sustainably managed forests.
Later on, in September 2010, the company is among the first in the field to obtain FSC ®certification (Forest Certification Council®) which testifies that the imported raw material comes from properly managed forests.
The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is an independent, non-governmental and not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests. All FSC® certified forest concessions must respect the established strict principles and criteria issued by the Forest Stewardship Council®. Indepentend Certification Bodies carry out extensive external audits by the certified forests confirming that they meet the strict social, economic and ecological requirements of the FSC® Principles and Criteria.
Working together for a responsible future.
The pursuit of a balance between economic goals and responsible forest management, has continuously encouraged Nord Compensati to choose new partners who share the company’s philosophy on environmental issues.
In the light of the above, Nord Compensati has established a strong partnership with the French Group Rougier that, for more than 10 years, has been ensuring a responsible, sustainable management of their forest concessions in the Congo basin.
Nord Compensati is proud to commercialize Rougier’s okoumè marine plywood - certified from the cutting up to semi-finished - ensuring chain of custody certification.
High quality in full respect of the environment.
Nord Compensati has developed solutions that embrace the concepts of responsible forest management and progressively increase the use of FSC® certified wood.
The constant commitment in Research and Development, driven by the deep respect for the environment, has led our company to design and produce hi-tech composite panels and plywood panels that have been recognized as 100% FSC® certified.
