FSC® Chain of Custody certificate since 2007
Many consumers see DIY stores as having a particular obligation to ensure that only products from responsible forestry are on offer. To meet our customers’ expectations in this area while also doing justice to our own commitment to sustainability, in 2007 HORNBACH became the first international DIY chain to be awarded the FSC® Chain of Custody certificate GFA-COC-002007 / FSC® C010062. This enables the timber supply chain to be checked from the place of origin through to the end product. The company's entitlement to this certificate is reviewed in annual audits performed by an independent testing institute. At all HORNBACH stores, trade companies and DIY enthusiasts can choose from a range of several thousand timber products bearing the FSC® seal. Watch out for FSC® certified products!
