Certifications

Wood is the only raw material that regenerates itself: it is a precious asset for man and must be respected. The intelligent and prudent use of forest resources is our specific duty, in order to guarantee our children and future generations a better life, in balance and harmony with nature!

Chain of Custody Policy for Wood Products

The Management of GUERCIO S.p.A. has set up a control system for the chain of custody of wood products, in compliance with the requirements defined by the PEFC ™ COC certification scheme in order to transfer to its customers the guarantee of a source of the raw material from sustainably managed forests. The actions implemented for the effective application of the system are:
- Prioritize the procurement of material from sustainably managed forests;
- Choose the suppliers who operate in compliance with the forest legislation in force in the countries they belong to;
- Provide for the progressive integration into the management system of products made directly through the use of both certified raw materials and controlled timber;
- Progressively increase the quantity of raw material certified according to the PEFC scheme;
- Raise awareness of its staff, customers and suppliers on issues related to sustainable forest management.
- Respect the social health and safety requirements of the STD PEFC ITA 1002: 2013
In order to ensure the achievement of the set objectives, the Management has identified the Representative of the Management with the responsibility and authority to maintain the traceability system.
