In the fall of 2017 we were approved to sell FSC-certified goods. The first FSC-certified furniture rolled out of our Halmstad warehouse in early 2018. Now that we are officially certified we want to focus more on working actively with sustainability by offering FSC furniture globally. Contributing to reduce negative climate impact and to promote more responsible forestry is extremely important to us.
What does an FSC certification mean?
FSC stands for ‘Forest Stewardship Council’, an independent, international members organisation that works for environmentally-friendly, socially responsible and economically viable use of the world’s forestry resources through its FSC-certification system.
When a Rowico furniture collection is FSC-certified it means that all of the wooden components used in it’s construction are supplied from a responsibly managed forest. Namely, a forest that takes the environment, regeneration and fair trade into account. You are reducing environmental impact by purchasing FSC furniture.
Rowico must have 100% control over its supply chain and stockholding to qualify as FSC-certified. We are regularly reviewed by an external authority to ensure we are maintaining standards. Rowico was reviewed and approved in April 2018. You can read more about our certificate at www.info.fsc.org and search for Rowico’s certificate number BV-COC-135942 or our license number C135942.
In the future we want to expand the number of FSC-certified products in our portfolio by increasing our demand for FSC-certified materials amongst our suppliers. We want to reduce our impact on the environment by encouraging more sustainable consumption and production. If you choose to buy FSC-certified furniture you too are making a difference. Look out for the official FSC logo on our certified furniture.
