OUR GREEN PROGRAM
YOU RESPECT THE PLANET, SO DO WE.
From the beginning, we have been committed to sustainability both in our processes and the materials we use.
Our cabinets are 100% sustainably sourced and CARB2 compliant, meaning they meet or exceed the California Air Resources Board’s stringent quality standards. Our wood composites are made with No Added Urea Formaldehyde and are 90% + recyclable.
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) evaluated formaldehyde exposure in California and found that one of the major sources of exposure is from inhalation of formaldehyde emitted from composite wood products containing urea-formaldehyde resins. Formaldehyde is a respiratory irritant. In addition, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) lassifies formaldehyde as being "carcinogenic to humans" based on the increased risk of nasopharyngeal cancer.
Formaldehyde was also designated as a toxic air contaminant (TAC) in California in 1992 with no safe level of exposure. State law requires CARB to take action to reduce human exposure to all TACs.
The purpose of TSCA Title VI is to reduce formaldehyde emissions from composite wood products, which will reduce exposures to formaldehyde and result in benefits from avoided adverse health effects. This final rule includes formaldehyde emission standards applicable to hardwood plywood, medium-density fiberboard, and particleboard, and finished goods containing these products, that are sold, supplied, offered for sale, or manufactured (including imported) in the United States.
The FSC® chain of custody (CoC) is the path taken by products from the forest, or in the case of recycled materials from the moment when the material is reclaimed, to the point where the product is sold with an FSC claim and/or it is finished and FSC labelled. The CoC includes each stage of sourcing, processing, trading, and distribution where progress to the next stage of the supply chain involves a change of product ownership.
Any change of ownership in the supply chain of FSC-certified products requires the establishment of effective CoC management systems at the level of the respective organization and their verification by an independent FSC-accredited certification body, if the organization wants to make an FSC claim about their products.
FSC certification of such management systems is designed to provide a credible assurance that products which are sold with an FSC claim originate from well-managed forests, controlled sources, reclaimed materials, or a mixture of these. FSC CoC certification thereby facilitates the transparent flow of goods made from such materials through the supply chain.
Forest certification is at the core of our work, as we promote and enable sustainable forest management around the world. We recognize that while the concept of sustainable forest management is global in nature, its implementation is local. This is why we work with local organizations and people to advance responsible forestry. This brochure provides an overview of how we approach the core of our work, forest certification.
