In managing its activities, LEONARDUS SRL is inspired by objectives of economic, environmental and social sustainability oriented to the protection of human rights, work and safety, as well as the principles of transparency and probity.
In this perspective of continuous improvement of its environmental standards and greater guarantee of the products marketed, LEONARDUS SRL has decided to achieve the FSC® and PEFC™ chain of custody certification and is committed daily to its maintenance over time, respecting in this regard the principles and criteria set by the FSC® and PEFC™ standards.
What is FSC®?
FSC® (Forest Stewarship Council®) is an international NGO based in Bohn, founded by environmental associations including Greenpeace, representatives of indigenous peoples, development cooperation organizations, forest producers, workers, wood industries, forest scientists and technicians with the aim of protecting forests around the world and the peoples who inhabit them and who base their economic development and livelihood on them.
The FSC® certification mark guarantees that the entire wood-paper supply chain derives from environmentally friendly, socially useful and economically sustainable forest management in accordance with a series of criteria established by FSC®. Buying an FSC® certified product therefore means actively contributing to the protection of the environment and the protection of human rights.
What is PEFC ™ ?
PEFC ™ was born as a voluntary, non-profit initiative of the private sector (forest owners, representatives of the wood and crafts industry, final consumers, Public Administrations, freelancers) that originated from a series of meetings of representatives of forest owners from some promoter countries (Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden).
PEFC ™ is a certification system that allows the final consumer to recognize products manufactured with raw materials that come from forests managed in a correct way, from an environmental and social point of view. A PEFC ™ forest is a forest where logging is controlled and does not affect the overall health of the forest. Therefore, buying from a PEFC ™ certified company means buying a wooden product that does not contribute to the destruction of forests.
The Chain of Custody (CoC)
The Chain of Custody is the certification of the traceability of the raw material that affects all companies involved in the transformation of wood and cellulose and which guarantees their origin from certified forests. The certification allows consumers to be sure that the products they buy come from a responsible source, that primary forests have not been cut down and indigenous communities damaged.
In Leonardus we are committed to providing our customers with materials and solutions that respect the environment, the ecosystem and the global forest heritage. In the management of our activities, we are inspired by objectives of economic, environmental and social sustainability oriented towards the protection of human rights, work and safety, as well as the principles of transparency and honesty.
All products marketed and distributed by LEONARDUS SRL under the FSC® and PEFC™ brands do not contain raw materials of wood origin from uncontrolled sources.
