Project certification

Project certification helps you align with the EU Timber Regulation, achieve LEED certification and comply with many other local regulatory standards. Of all forest certification schemes, we provide the highest level of protection for endangered species and natural forests. You can certify virtually any type of new build or refurbishment and civil engineering projects or events such as exhibitions and festivals. All FSC materials must be purchased from FSC-certified companies with the requisite claims included on the invoice.
