There is an ever increasing awareness in society of the responsibility we all have to create a future based on sustainable development.
The construction industry is no stranger to this phenomenon and every day customers have higher demands in terms of environmental criteria. In many cases, requirements of sustainability can be determining factors when it comes to carrying out a project. Wood products have a very relevant role in preserving the environment and valuing natural resources. Both our environmental policy and our commitment to sustainability are a guarantee in this regard.
For both the designer and the carpenter and also the promoters this means having absolute confidence in being able to guarantee in a simple way the traceability of the wood materials used in their projects and of being able to comply with any environmental certification requirement that the customer may have.
With Finsa decorative wood products, end customers can be assured that they are contributing to preserving the environment.

Sustainable raw materials
Wood is the essence of our industry, so we are fully aware of our commitment to the environment. For this reason, we are totally committed to the use of legally harvested timber in compliance with the European Timber Regulation (EUTR) EU No. 995/2010. We can also supply timber from PEFC and FSC® certified forests - certifications that ensure sustainable forest management. In addition, over 60% of the wood used in the manufacture of our products comes from recycled raw materials, such as sawmill waste, sawdust, shavings, residues from forest cleaning etc.
A clean industry
We are one of the cleanest industries: we generate more energy than we consume for the processing of our products. All of our production processes are optimised for maximum energy savings through cogeneration (the utilisation of the energy and heat produced by the factory itself) and to achieve a minimum level of waste. Also, the useless waste generated by our business and also material recycled from other industries is used to generate energy through our biomass power plants. We promise to provide clear and transparent information on the impact of our products on the environment during all stages of their life cycle through our Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) so that both the professional and the end consumer are aware of the ecological footprint of our solutions in wood.
Wood is a sustainable material and 100% recyclable which helps reduce CO2.
