In acknowledgment to our efforts on the path of sustainable development, our environmental certifications evidence the commitment to use sustainability in all our processes and ensure competitive advantage to our business.
FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®)
We are proud to be the first company in South America to obtain the FSC® certification for forest management. Since 1995, we have this certification, which certifies that our activities related to practice are environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable. We still have FSC® certification for chain of custody, which ensures traceability of the wood used in our production process. Ask us about our FSC® certified products.
ISO (International Organization for Standardization)
We have the international standard ISO 9001 for Quality Management Systems in 11 from our 17 manufacturing plants. Additionally, 11 of our manufacturing and forestry plants are certified with ISO 14001 for Environmental Management Systems. Both labels are granted by the International Organization for Standardization and certify that our work in society complies with the international environmental quality and management standards.
We also are certified in Occupational Health and Safety. A number of 16 from our 24 manufacturing and forestry plants have the OHSAS 18001, granted by BSI Group, which certifies our commitment to continually improve mechanisms to minimize risks in our production processes and increase the commitment of our employees to adopt safer behavior to prevent accidents.
