Certifications

Certification is a process through which we endeavour to advance and improve our Management Systems,  through achieving Industry standard regulatory requirements. This illustrates our dedication and commitment to progression and enhanced performance.

FSC®

According to the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations, half the world’s Forests have already been altered, degraded, destroyed, or converted into other land uses. Much of the remaining Forestry today suffers from illegal exploitation and poor management.

FSC® is a global network of members, staff, certificate holders, promotional licence holders and responsible consumers. By working together, we can help to ensure that we use forests and forest products responsibly, shifting the global forest trend towards sustainable use, conservation, restoration, and respect for all.

FSC® certification complies with the highest Social and Environmental standards on the market and will offer NBJ’s Clients the ability to choose products from Socially and Environmentally responsible Forestry. Clients have the option of selecting FSC® Certified Joinery secure in the knowledge that they are not contributing to the destruction of the world’s Forests
