Hatil receives sustainability certificate
Hatil received the Forest Stewardship Council's international sustainability certification for its furniture, door and door frames supply chain. FSC is a not-for-profit organisation that promotes responsible management of the world's forests.
Global buyers of furniture highly value the FSC certification and it is considered a requirement for exporting furniture to some countries, Hatil said in a statement.
The certificate ensures that the wood is collected from sustainable sources and reaches the final customer through an unbroken chain that ensures proper traceability and accounts for environmental, social and economic benefits, according to the statement.
“It is an important step toward greater sustainability and global integration, '' said Selim H Rahman, chairman and managing director of Hatil Complex.
