Albert Oudenaarden, Arie van den Berg and Hans Stout (involved in the company as an adviser) have already won their spurs in the wood industry. But it is hard to resist entrepreneurship. Kees van den Berg, entrepreneur pur sang, feels right at home. 'We feel responsible for the earth', says Arie van den Berg. Hans Stout adds: 'Sustainable wood trade gives forests an economic value, which enables us to maintain them. We are specialists in sustainable wood and have put all of our knowledge and ideals into this new company.'
FSC is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests. Established in 1993 as a response to concerns over global deforestation.
FSC certification provides a credible link between responsible production and consumption of forest products, enabling consumers and businesses to make purchasing decisions that benefit people and the environment as well as providing ongoing business value.
