Frequently Asked Questions
The Forest Stewardship Council® is a world-renowned non-profit organization that has dedicated itself to the sustainability and overall health of the Earth's forests. They work with lumber companies and governments around the world to promote sustainable forestry practices that produce eco-friendly decking. Lumber can only become FSC® certified when the Forest Stewardship Council® reviews and approves both the import company's practices, and lumber mill's forestry practices. Every step in the chain of custody from forest to jobsite is independently verified by 3rd parties.
The Brazilian plantations and mills where we acquire our lumber from already use government monitored sustainable forestry practices. The whole world isn't so regulated however. To show our customers that the wood they are buying is 100% beyond a doubt from a sustainable forest, we worked hard to acheive the FSC® certification.
End consumers don't know about Brazil's highly regulated plantations and lumber mills. They don't know that we do business exclusively with Brazilian plantations and mills. Without the FSC® certified lumber label, consumers and wholesalers can easily be doubtful about the source of the lumber. Thankfully, that is not the case. And, with the Forest Stewardship Council®, we now have a way of sorting through those claims. The result of these efforts have led to increased awareness of the demand for eco-deck products as well as eco-friendly flooring.
One of our goals here at the Ipe Decking Company is to ensure that we lead other deck suppliers, companies, and wholesalers to adopting and promoting sustainable forestry practices. After all, if we are to keep growing as an industry, we must realize that the demand for wood that has been harvested and cultivated through responsible forestry is not going anywhere. In fact, it is growing by leaps and bounds!
FSC® wood is available each and everyday with the Ipe Decking Company:
As noted above, we also carry FSC® wood that has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council®. After all, it's one thing to say that you're eco-friendly. It's another to actually have everyday business practices that back up those words.
