Sustainable development, the Natuzzi Group is FSC certified

FSC

The Natuzzi Group’s commitment for a sustainable and responsible development has become FSC certified by the Accredited Certification Body, Bureau Veritas.

The FSC Chain-of-Custody certification ensures the consumers that the raw material used to make a wooden product come from well-managed forests, respecting the social, economic and environmental needs of present and future generations. In addition to the Natuzzi S.p.A., even the Natuzzi production and trading sites based in China and Romania were certified.

“The FSC certification – said Pasquale Natuzzi – confirms our strong commitment to a crucial issue that is the environmental protection. The use of photovoltaic energy, low environmental impact technologies, natural materials such as wood and leather, the stringent corporate policies on deforestation, environmental and quality certifications are all actions that protect the environment and point to a target consumers looking for a beautiful and functional but also sustainable design”.

Besides being a further certificate to the responsible environmental management of the Natuzzi Group, already certified ISO 9001 – 14001 (Quality and Environment) and OHSAS 18001 (Safety in the Workplace), the FSC certification is also an important factor in competitiveness, given the growing demand for sustainable and environmentally friendly products by consumers. It shows up with the publication of the 2016 Sustainability Report.
