FSC® Certified Products
Big K is committed to supply FSC® Certified Firewood & Lumpwood Charcoal to our trade customers and home-users
More and more people are interested in where products come from, how they are made, and their impact on the world around them.
As a company trading forest products, it has become even more important to us to show that we operate in an environmentally, economically and socially responsible way.
FSC certification gives you the guarantee that the FSC-labelled product you buy has come from a forest and supply chain that is managed responsibly. It also guarantees that non FSC labeled products have gone through a due diligence system of approval, as agreed through the FSC policy of association.
To achieve FSC certification, we adhere to rules that cover the essentials of responsible forest management. These rules apply worldwide, across all ecosystems and cultural, political, and legal systems, with specific guidance provided for local interpretation.
