We have the required environmental certifications!
Our environmental policy:
Bjernareds Sågverk produce sawn timber from wood that, to the largest possible share, comes from eco-friendly certified forests. We are working for this volume to increase. In a responsible way we fulfil our commitment towards employees, society, environment and agents.
Bjernared complies applicable legislation and follow PEFC and FSC® requirements and intentions and, as far as possible, make sure that raw materials do not come from illegal or unauthorized felling and key habitats,wood harvested in violation of traditional and civil rights, wood harvested in forests where high conservation values are threatened bymanagement activities, wood from forests in which genetically modified trees are planted or Wood harvested in forests beingconverted to plantations or non-forest use.
Our production methods are conducted and improved in such a way that negative impact on the environment will be reduced.
An example is our biomass-boiler that is powered by the waste from the mill and has low emission levels. We have also installed an energy conductor that controls all industrial electricity to minimize the total electricity consumption.
Our environmental performance is an aggregate of what is possible technically, viable economically and justified ecologically.
All employees must show personal responsibility for the environment in their daily work and follow all the regulations regarding the environment and current PEFC and FSC® requirements.
