TKC achieves Forest Stewardship Council Chain of Custody certification
TKC has achieved the prestigious Forest Stewardship Council Chain of Custody Certification for all 50 of its stocked door ranges and cabinets, reinforcing the company's ongoing commitment to the environment and the use of sustainable materials and timber sourced from well managed forests.
The FSC sets higher standards than any other forest certification scheme and certification ensures that materials and products have been checked at every stage of processing.
"We are delighted to achieve the Chain of Custody certification having gone through a rigorous application and auditing process," says Chris Hazelhurst, commercial director at TKC.
"Almost half of the people in the UK recognise the FSC trademark logo design and the market for responsibly sourced timber and timber products is growing. We have recognised that FSC certification is an important requirement and it is a major milestone for us, underpinning our Corporate Social Responsibility and our plans for growth."
TKC will introduce the FSC trademark on to its doors and cabinets and the certification will also be reflected in all corporate branding moving forward.
"Without independent certification, customers have no way of being able to verify that they are buying responsibly," warns Chris. "The great news is that customers purchasing TKC doors and carcasses can be confident that they originate from well managed FSC forests in accordance with the rules of the Forest Stewardship Council."
Customers can verify the TKC Chain of Custody certification on the FSC global database at:
