Sustainability

Dedicated to sustainably managed forests

At BBS Timbers we are pleased to announce that we carry Chain-of-Custody (CoC) certification that allows us to supply timber that carries FSC® certification –
( SCS-COC-007494 )

FSC® certified timber and PEFC™ certified timber undergo independent third party audited certification procedures at every step of the supply chain. This offers designers, specifiers, architects and consumers absolute assurance that those forest and wood products labelled FSC® certified or PEFC™ certified come from responsible sources, which are managed to pre-scribed social, economic and environmental standards.

BBS Timbers are one of New Zealand’s leading imported timber suppliers offering a large range of Hardwood/Softwood and plywood, we believe that supplying FSC® and PEFC™ certified timber is essential for our continued growth. A large part of our Timber and panel range have FSC® or PEFC™ certification.

Fostering positive partnerships

BBS Timbers is a member of numerous associations – Real Cedar and NZTIA (NZ Timber Importers Association) who have implemented a Rainforest Policy which focuses on promoting and supporting efficient and sustainable forest management.

To ensure we consistently source timber from responsibly managed forests we work alongside organizations such as ITTG (Imported Tropical Timber Group) MPI and Greenpeace. We communicate regularly with these organizations to keep knowledge of our timber sources current and fully compliant with our commitment to protecting the environment.

Focus on sustainable NZ forests

We’re also dedicated to protecting New Zealand’s forests and environment, working with responsibly managed Radiata Pine and Macrocarpa forests here in NZ. We’ve planted our own forests over the last 20 years which operate under strict controls to ensure best practice.
