The aim is to implement a reliable business model able to ensure stable performance over time and to keep improving the quality of products and services.
In fact, the ISO 9001:2015 standard defines the minimum requirements that an organization's Quality Management System must meet to guarantee the quality of products and services as claimed both internally and towards the market.
Essepiwood obtained the FSC® certification in 2012.(Forest Stewardship Council®) This certification system verifies sustainable sourcing of forest products and ecosystem services at every step of the value chain, from forest to consumer. This system allows certificate holders to market their products and services as the result of environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable forest management. This certification system verifies sustainable sourcing of forest products and ecosystem services at every step of the value chain, from forest to consumer.
In 2013 our company obtained the PEFC certification. This certification promotes sustainable forest management , allowing consumers and companies to choose products from sustainable sources, rewarding responsible forest owners and creating an incentive for non-certified forest owners to obtain certification. Forest certification increases the value of forests by building consumer confidence and thus creating additional demand for forest products. Increasing value and demand for forest products is one of the best ways to conserve forests, as it prevents forest land from being converted in land for alternative uses such as agriculture. Increasingly, forest certification is a prerequisite to have access to the labour market and certified forest materials are more and more requested in supply policies around the world.
