The FSC is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests. The FSC certification ensures that the forest products used are from responsibly harvested and verified sources. For more details on FSC Certification and the criteria for accreditation, see the FSC website for more details.
As at October 2010, the FSC Database lists 69 Thai companies which carry this accreditation. We need to work together to support these companies and encourage other companies which use wood as a natural resource to gain this accreditation.
Type of Sustainable Thai Wood
Thai Woods that are extremely beautiful but have caused vast swathes of deciduous and tropical forest habitat to be destroyed include Teak and Makha wood. These trees take hundreds of years to go and can be downed with 1 sad strike. Woods that take shorter times to grow and aren’t habitats to animal life are the more eco choice to use. The most sustainable types of wood in Thailand are:
- Mango wood
- Rubber wood
