Sustainable forest management

Siemerink only works with woods that come from responsible sustainable forestry, and only high-quality linen and pure cotton are used for the canvases. When gluing, products are used that are free of formaldehyde and other harmful substances.

Approvals of sustainability

Siemerink only works with woods that come from responsible sustainable forestry. Siemerink takes her responsibility in all facets.

PEFC

PEFC is the international independent quality mark for promoting sustainable forest management. The ultimate goal of PEFC is that all forests in the world are managed in a sustainable way. More than 1,000,000 forest owners who are members of PEFC manage more than 250 million hectares of certified forest worldwide according to the requirements and criteria of PEFC. Nearly 16,000 companies in the supply chain have a PEFC Chain of Custody certificate to supply sustainable wood and paper. For example, PEFC certified wood (products) and paper are traceable from the forest to the many end products.

FSC®

The Forest Stewardship Council ® (FSC) is an international organization committed to conservation and responsible forest management worldwide.

FSC speaks of responsible forest management when the ecological, social and economic aspects associated with forest management are taken into account in a balanced way. FSC has arranged this in a transparent manner. Partly because of this, FSC is supported by all major environmental and development organizations. And FSC is unique in this!

Small carbon footprint

Siemerink Houtwaren BV obtains its raw materials only from western European sources, which keeps transport movements to a minimum.

Also the production takes place entirely in Haaksbergen where, from raw material to finished product, the complete processing takes place without any freight transport.

With the above, we limit CO2 emissions and contribute to a cleaner environment.
