FORESTS FOR ALL
Charles Bentley is FSC-Certified®
Our social and environmental policy is committed to the local community as we understand that local issues have a global impact. Therefore we work closely with environmental organisations to promote good ethical and environmental practice.
We are committed to working with international and global standards relating to the purchase of timber. This includes both the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council®) which is backed by the World Wide Fund (WWF) and International Accreditation Forum to establish good ethical and environmental forest management.
What is FSC?
FSC runs a global forest certification system with two key components: Forest management and Chain of Custody certification. This system allows consumers to identify, purchase and use wood, paper and other forest products produced from well managed forests and / or recycled materials. FSC certifies forests all over the world to ensure they meet the highest environmental and social standards. Products made with wood and paper from FSC forests are marked with the ‘tick tree’ logo.
