Hiddenhausen – eggersmann küchen GmbH & Co. KG has become the first German industrial manufacturer of kitchen systems to be certified according to the stringent requirements of the FOREST STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL (FSC). In this, eggersmann is setting the standard in the responsible use of wood-based materials and the treatment of the natural world.

FSC is the most widely recognised international certification system for sustainable forestry management. It prevents overexploitation, protects endangered species and guards against human rights abuses all over the world. It deals with the responsible harvesting of timber from both tropical and native forests.

The main aspect of the FSC’s work is the certification of forests according to uniform global criteria. When awarding such certification, the FSC takes the economic, environmental and social demands made of forests into account.

All certified operations are inspected annually, both in the forest itself and in the industries that go on to use the timber, providing a high degree of trustworthiness and transparency. That is why the FSC is the only forest certification system supported by environmental and social agencies, as well as the forestry and timber industries. Over 115 million hectares of forest around the globe are FSC-certified, 500,000 of which are found in Germany.

For eggersmann, being awarded the certification is another important step along the road to marketing itself on the international stage. In many countries such as England, but also the USA and Canada, FSC certification is already viewed as extremely important. In many cases it is even a condition of being selected as a supplier when tendering for contracts.

This is now a quite significant field for eggersmann: this year, for example, the company supplied 863 kitchens and a huge number of bathroom cabinets for the Olympic Village in Vancouver, site of the 2010 Winter Games.
