Raw materials

Supplies

Fibrous raw materials purchased by the Group come from forests managed in a responsible and   sustainable manner to ensure renewability, maintenance of biodiversity and the safeguarding of habitats.
Burgo Group scrupulously selects its suppliers based on their environmental performance. It  implemented a specific evaluation procedure in 2010 that means it can collect and analyse all relevant information concerning the source of fibre, its type, harvesting procedures, certifications and specific environmental performance factors.
Burgo Group gives preference to purchases of timber and fibrous raw materials from FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) or PEFC (Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes) certified forests.
