The harvesting of logs is designed to protect the environment and promote regeneration. Eveneer veneers include prefixes identifying sustainable wood sources and are made from,
- Poplar grown in SGS and FSC certified Italian plantations,
- Limewood grown in European managed forests and,
- Ayous grown in Cameroon forest concessions with OLB (Origine et Legalite du Bois) certification.
Poplars have been grown in Italy for decades in high rainfall areas in Northern Italy using agricultural methods and as an alternative to corn crops. The plantations are SGS (Societe Generale de Surveillance) certified for environmental sustainability.
Cameroon forest concessions operate under a concise forest management plan designed to achieve maximum sustainability and the lowest impact on the environment. Ayous veneers are sourced from the manufacturer under Cameroon forestry regulation ensuring the wood harvested is not greater than the wood volume regrowth.
