We are pride to inform you that we recently obtained the ISO 14001: 2015 certificate, certified by Lloyd's Register. "With Environmental Management System certification according to the ISO 14001 standard, organizations show that they remain committed to improving their environmental performance. The standard has been extensively overhauled so that the objectives are in line with the changing needs of today's society: a reflection of the increasingly complex world in which organizations operate ", according to Lloyd's Register.
As of 2018, the wood packaging industry has scored 77% for recyclable packaging. From 2025, this percentage should be 74%, according to Dutch requirements. So the wood processing industry is doing well! Do read the Houtwereld article below.
We are proud to inform you that last week we received an award from Lloyd's Register. Nice to report something positive and festive during this time! We have had the ISO 9001 certificate since 1990. ISO 9001 is the international standard for quality management systems. 30 years ago we were the first pallet company in the Netherlands to win the certificate. This certification has become an indispensable part of the business world. “More than 1 million organizations worldwide have obtained their ISO 9001 certification. This standard is therefore the most important business documentation ever drawn up, ”says Lloyd's Register. In addition to the award that we received, our certificate has also been extended by 3 years. We are also working on obtaining a certificate for environmental management. You will hear more about this later.
Wood is the most sustainable, environmentally friendly raw material available for packaging. The use of wooden pallets and packaging helps to protect our climate and contributes to the reputation of your company in the field of corporate social responsibility. The many benefits of wood form the basis for our communication strategy, which has been awarded the title "The Quality of Wood".
WHAT IS THE POWER OF WOOD?
Wooden pallets and packaging can be endlessly reused, repaired and recycled. In the final phase, when wood is burned, energy is recovered. Wood is also the largest supplier of biomass. This cycle of wood is also CO2 neutral, 1 m³ of wood saves 0.8 tons of CO2 compared to alternative materials, such as plastic. There is no raw material that has the same qualifications.
