This certification guarantees that the timber used in our stretcher bars is harvested sustainably, protecting biodiversity and the rights of local communities.

CO2 accounts: Tracking and reducing our carbon footprint.

As part of our commitment to minimizing our carbon footprint, we diligently track and account for our CO2 emission. By analyzing the emissions of our production processes, from raw material extraction to product transportation, we can identify areas where we can improve and implement targeted measures to reduce our impact.

To further mitigate our carbon emissions, we have implemented several initiatives:

1.   Efficient production: We continuously explore innovative manufacturing techniques and invest in energy-efficient machinery to optimize our production processes. By minimizing waste and maximizing resource utilization, we strive to make our stretcher bars as sustainable as possible.

2.   Supply chain collaboration: We work closely with our suppliers and logistics partners to ensure they share our commitment to sustainability. Together, we aim to reduce emissions throughout the entire supply chain, from sourcing raw materials to delivering the finished products.

3.   Recycling and waste management: We promote a circular economy by actively recycling and reusing materials wherever possible. Our waste management practices prioritize responsible disposal, ensuring minimal environmental impact.
