Halspan takes its environmental responsibilities very seriously.
Reflecting this long-term commitment, all our timber door blanks and cores are made from sustainably-sourced materials, are either FSC® or PEFC™ Chain of Custody certified and comply with EU Timber Regulation.
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) global certification scheme enables consumers to identify, purchase and use timber and forest products produced from well-managed forests.
Every Halspan timber door blank is FSC® Chain of Custody certified.
The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC™) is dedicated to both sustainable forest management and timber processing.
Halspan timber door blanks can comply with PEFC™ upon request for PEFC™ materials.
EU Timber Regulation
Internationally, a great deal of work is being done to improve forestry and harvesting practices. It’s recognised that good forest management can contribute to climate change mitigation, and provide environmental benefits as well as social, political and economic betterment.
In order to combat the international trade in illegal timber, the European Commission has created legislation to prevent illegal wood from being placed onto the market in the European Union. The regulation came into force in March 2013 and applies to timber and timber-based products that are produced both within the EU and imported into the Member States from outside the EU.
Halspan timber particle board door blanks and cores are produced in the EU from sustainable sources and have either FSC® or PEFC™ Chain of Custody certification. Whilst certified timber isn’t exempt from EU Timber Regulation, these schemes provide a straightforward means of demonstrating compliance.
Every Halspan timber door blank and core complies with EU Timber Regulation.
As well as using only sustainably-sourced materials, Halspan and all it's particle board and solid timber core mills are certified for Environmental Management in accordance with the ISO 14001 international standard. We’re also ISO 9001 certified for Quality Management.
