Vérification du bois et des fibres récupérés

Vérification environnementale et juridique du bois et des fibres récupérés

Stefan Bergmann |  

SCS offers independent verification to the Salvaged Wood and Fiber Standard to help recognize, evaluate, and certify good practices for salvaged wood and other plant-based material that would otherwise be wasted.

The standard is for companies that wishes to sell forest or agricultural-based products that are traditionally neglected or discarded such as fire-killed wood, insect-killed wood, urban wood, orchard waste, aquatic salvage, and more. Verification can be used for recovered materials such as wooden beads, barndoors, driftwood, wheat, corn husks, rope, baskets, dried water hyacinth, and textiles. This allows organizations to objectively demonstrate that the salvaged products are following legal and responsible environmental practices.

Verification to this standard helps organizations meet consumer and stakeholder demand for transparency and accurate claims in the marketplace. It expands their ability to broaden the market for responsible materials that are otherwise wasted. This standard was developed by SCS to reduce pressures on natural forests and other sensitive environments while striving to meet ever-increasing human demands for wood and other plant-based products.

For verification, companies must adhere to the five principles of the standard, which include system maintenance to classify products, proper authorizations to conduct business, legal right to salvaged wood resources, compliance with local and national laws, and implementation of a quality system.
