All timber used at the Fremantle Door & Window Company is derived from environmentally sustainable sources.
Timber is primarily sourced from suppliers who have been certified by the Malaysian Timber Certification Council (MTCC).
The MTCC is an independent organisation established to develop and operate a voluntary national timber certification scheme in Malaysia in order to provide independent assessments of forest management practices as well as to meet the demand for certified timber products.
What Timber Certification Means to You
Timber certification is a market-linked tool to promote and encourage sustainable forest management as well as to provide an assurance to buyers that the timber products they buy come from sustainably managed forests.
The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) of UK has listed the MTCS as one of the seven recognised certification schemes in its Conservation and Environment Guidelines.
The French Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development and the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs have listed the MTCS as one of the acceptable certification schemes in the French Policy on Public Procurement of Timber and Wood Products entitled French National Timber Procurement Policy.
The MTCS is also listed as one of the certification schemes in the Guideline for Verification on Legality and Sustainability of Wood and Wood Products issued by the Forestry Agency, Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, Japan.
