The FSC® commitment

Why choose FSC® certified furniture?
You’ve probably noticed that most Tikamoon furniture is made from FSC® certified wood, but do you really know what this certification involves? Let’s take a closer look. 

The FSC® is an independent non-governmental organization, dedicated to protecting the world’s forests. The acronym stands for Forest Stewardship Council.

As stated by the organisation, FSC® certification is intended to guarantee forest management that is: 

  • Ecologically appropriate
  • Socially beneficial
  • Economically viable

What is really meant by these three statements? Let’s decipher them together.

Ecologically appropriate forest management

The harvesting of timber (and forest products) must maintain biodiversity in the forest. In other words, the wood used for the manufacture of furniture must not have a negative impact on forest ecosystems. By buying a piece of furniture made from FSC® certified wood, the consumer becomes part of a process of long-term forest conservation, the struggle against deforestation and acting to promote biodiversity.

Socially beneficial forest management

The FSC® pays very close attention to the recommendations of the International Labour Organisation (ILO). It is committed to ensuring that local workers are respected with regard to both the right to work, and to recreational or landscaping activities in forests. It develops dialogue between foresters and local populations to protect the rights and customs of indigenous people…with the focal point always being the sustainable protection of forests. To open and maintain dialogue wherever the forest is being exploited.

Economically viable forest management

The FSC® ensures that forestry operations are sufficiently attractive from a financial point of view so that there can be no question of replacing them with more lucrative activities, such as agriculture, for example.

Rather than a simple FSC® commercial licence, we chose to seek the FSC® chain of custody certification. We are very proud to have obtained and renewed it every year since 2018. The FSC® chain of custody certification is a demanding label that guarantees the traceability of FSC® wood at every stage of the manufacturing process… from the forest to your home, including all stages of treatment, transformation and distribution.

Enabling you to make educated choices by keeping you informed, means creating positive change towards responsible industries. From the living room to the bathroom, including the office and the kitchen… together we are helping to protect the forest for future generations.
