Where possible, we insist upon maintaining a certified chain of custody for the majority of the timber we buy. That’s why we’re so proud that more than half of our product range is PEFCTM (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) certified.
These awards are given to responsibly managed forests that respect the legal system, land usage rights and the rights of indigenous peoples and their workers, in addition to guaranteeing that felled trees are replaced with saplings.
These unique international non-profit, non-governmental certification systems represent some of the largest environmental movements in the world and we are excited and proud to be a part of them. This means that when you purchase an elka floor, you can be proud that you are choosing to furnish your home with one of the world’s environmentally friendly products: natural wood from a responsibly managed forest. For any timber that isn’t certified, we always ensure that it is from well-managed sources.
