Environment

Panguaneta Poplar Thoughout Plywood is  PEFC™ certified, with  FSC® available on request.

The Poplar used in Poplar Throughout Plywood is a very specific strain of the fast-growing I-214 Italian clone specifically developed for the plywood industry and it is harvested in Northern Italy on the banks of the River Po. The species is synonymous with environmental protection as it is known to improve the quality of air and water, protect the biodiversity of natural habitats and is a renewable and sustainable resource.

Panguaneta has implemented and plays a leading role in an exemplary programme for the sustainable development of the Poplar industry in Italy; the ‘100% Poplar Made in Italy’ label. The company is also a member of the world organisation ‘Pro-Populus’ which is active in the promotion and environmental safeguarding of poplar trees.

Panguaneta does not make use of wood harvested from areas where traditions or civil rights have been violated or where there are ongoing armed conflicts. All timber found in Panguaneta Poplar Plywood is from areas that have not been menaced or illegally cultivated nor do they source from from natural areas converted into plantations with genetically modified trees (GMOs).
