Sourcing Forest Stewardship Council Wood is Important to NMB

Northern Mat & Bridge is committed to social and environmental responsibility. We purchase our raw materials from forest operators that are part of The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) because we know that the trees harvested, have been done so in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner and THIS is important to us.

Forest Stewardship Council Alberta

The FSC was founded by environmentalists, First Nations, local citizens and industry leaders in 1993, and is dedicated to promoting responsible forest management of the world's forests. This means that forests are evaluated to meet FSC's strict environmental and social standards.

When you are looking at an FSC certified product, it means the wildlife habitat from which it came was protected, local communities were consulted, and aboriginal rights were respected.

Learn more about what it means to be socially and environmentally responsible when purchasing and using wood and paper products. Visit FSC Canada online (https://ca.fsc.org), and be sure to watch Franke James' video entitled "Who cares about the Forest?" (http://vimeo.com/22536390).
