Active environmental protection & Sustainability

It is our declared goal to satisfy the highest demands - including those related to the conscious and environmentally friendly management of natural resources.

ISO 14001 certified

Our company has been ISO 14001 certified since 2004; in July 2013, this certificate was successfully renewed following an extensive audit process. This set of rules stands for the minimization of environmental pollution of soil, water, and air, and for the ongoing improvement process, with yearly revisions/ audits. This certification guarantees publicly approved environmental standards and acknowledges active prevention of environmental pollution and deep integration of environment protection in our company's philosophy.

FSC® for a sustainable economy

The FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) is an international umbrella organization for the promotion of an ecologically sound, socially responsible and economically sustainable forest economy. In addition, principles and criteria have been drawn up for a sustainable forest and wood economy. Certified companies receive an attestation for managing their forests complying with the ecological, social and economic criteria, specified by the FSC® or for processing or selling wood or wood products from certified forests.

The company Neuhofer Holz GmbH commits, not to be directly or indirectly involved in the following unacceptable activities:

  • Illegal logging or the trade in illegal wood or forest products;

  • Violation of traditional and human rights in forestry operations;

  • Destruction of high conservation values in forestry operations;

  • Significant conversion of forests to plantations or non-forest use;

  • Introduction of genetically modified organisms in forestry operations;

  • Violation of any of the ILO Core Conventions as defined in the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.

PEFC for ecological quality

The PEFC (Pan-European forest certification initiative) seal of approval makes it possible for the consumer to consciously decide on buying products originating from a responsible forest economy. This seal of approval guarantees that the forests from which the certified wood originates are managed in an ecologically, economically and socially sustainable manner, conforming to the standards of the PEFC. This confirms the active contribution of FN Neuhofer Holz to the ecological quality of its products and thereby to the protection of nature.

Product identification "Triman" for recyclable and separately collected products

Starting with January 1st 2015, the decree n. 2014-1577 entered into force. This degree determines the application of uniform product identifications together with the logo "Triman". The aim of this logo is to inform consumers whether products are recyclable, subject of the manufacturer's responsibility and separately collected in France. We meet these demands as we publish the product indentification "Triman" on our homepage.

UN Global Compact

We have been a member of the "UN Global Compact" network since June 2016. We support the ten principles concerning human rights, labour, environment protection and anti-corruption as well as the sustainable development goals of the UN.
