88% of Hanson Plywood’s Birch Plywood is sourced from well-managed, FSC® Certified forest management units (10% is sourced from PEFC™ certified sources).

The company’s robust FSC® Chain of Custody management system ensures that this certification is respected and adhered to throughout the supply chain. For further information, please refer to our Environment Page.

This means the product’s glue line is tested by the California Air Resource Board to meet a permissible level lower than that which is dictated by the European Standards (E1 under EN 717-2).
