The term “sustainability” comes originally from the area of forestry and means caring for and using forest areas in ways that take ecological, economical, and social aspects into consideration. But it is not just because wood is the most important material for SieMatic products that the topic of “sustainability” has always ranked highly here. True to our corporate motto, “Preferring the best”, SieMatic’s environmental efforts go far beyond the standard for the industry.
"Check the auditors"
There are always words that everyone talks about yet whose significance diminishes easily as a result. The word, “sustainability” is one of them. Not everyone who claims to subscribe to the cause actually practices it. The term originates from forestry and refers to the support and use of forests under ecological, economic and social criteria. Because wood is the most important material for our products, the topic of “sustainability” has always had a particularly special meaning at SieMatic. Our corporate motto is consistent with our preference to always do the best for our environment. Therefore, SieMatic’s environmental standards have always exceeded those of the industry. One must also examine the examiners. This is especially pertinent today with the recent flood of labels and agencies, many of which lack the same respect, transparency and significance as those environmental certifications awarded to SieMatic and its products.
