Sustainable Forestry, Certification and How It Helps.
A well-managed sustainable forest conserves all of our natural resources from trees to wildlife to the soil, air and our water. Central to ensuring this process is independent third-party certification, which assures consumers that the wood products they purchase come from responsibly managed forests, where biodiversity is conserved and local communities are supported.
Certification offers a "chain of custody" - a credible system that can track the paper all the way back to the forest stump, so that you can be sure that the products you are choosing are consistenty eco-friendly and contribute to the promotion of a cleaner, greener environment. CDW is a participant in several certification programs to ensure that many of the products and service offered rely only on certified well-managed forests. In particular, CDW is a participant in SFI (Sustainable Foresty Ininiative) program to guarantee that your finished goods are made from only certified source materials (certified materials available upon request).
