Excelsior Is Now FSC Certified

Excelsior Panelling is now a certified member of FSC. We now hold full chain of custody for all our timber products.

FSC Forest Stewardship Council

Some of the benefits of FSC certified products:

  • Environmental impact – to maintain or restore the ecosystem, its biodiversity, resources and landscapes.
  • Indigenous peoples’ rights – to identify and uphold indigenous peoples’ rights of ownership and use of land and resources.
  • The FSC label guarantees the trees that are harvested are replaced or allowed to regenerate naturally.
  • Part of the forests are protected entirely, in order to protect rare animals and plants.
  • Forest owners must use local workers to run the forest, provide training, safety equipment & a decent salary. In addition, the forest owner is obliged to support the local community in projects such as the development of schools.
  • FSC is a market-based initiative which also ensures better conditions for the forest and the people whose livelihoods depend on it.
