FSC® – Seal for environmentally friendly, sustainable and socially responsible forest management

The Forest Stewardship Council® – or FSC® for short - is an international non-governmental organisation dedicated to the conservation of forests worldwide through environmentally sound and sustainable management and socially responsible forestry. This also includes comprehensive standards for environmental protection as well as the observance of rights and the protection of the well-being of workers, their families and communities.

The internationally valid seal of approval for wood develops and is subject to strict criteria, compliance with which is verified annually by external bodies.

PEFCTM certification for sustainable forest management

Holz- und Papierprodukte aus nachhaltig bewirtschafteten Wäldern. Qualitäts- und Umweltbewusst. PEFC guarantees that wood and paper products come from sustainably managed forests. PEFC is the largest institution for ensuring and marketing sustainable forest management through an independent certification scheme.

PEFC is international. This is reflected in the name "Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes", which pursues one goal across national borders: the worldwide improvement of forest use and forest management. All national systems are based on the same origin in terms of content: namely, on the decisions adopted at the follow-up conferences to the Rio Conference on the Environment.

Timber trade laws for sustainable forest management & minimising illegal logging

Hobatex GmbH Industrial Partners is committed to sustainable forest management and minimising illegal logging worldwide.

To ensure the import of safe wood-based materials into the EU, we have incorporated a risk management system that reviews the relevant risks in terms of regions, species, suppliers, products, documentation, process and supply chains.

This ensures that we only import products into the EU that use risk-minimised roundwood sources and thus minimise the risk of overexploitation in forestry.

If any doubts or ambiguities arise, we conduct on-site audits with the suppliers, which we meticulously document and label with corresponding notes on the relevant delivery documents.

HOBATEX GmbH Industrial Partners trains and supports all employees in the implementation of this system.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
