To meet the demands of the Green Building industry, as well as safeguard our forests, several UFP facilities have met the rigorous standards required to earn Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain of Custody Certification.

FSC Certification

Universal Forest Products believes environmental responsibility and sustainability are essential practices that will ensure the future of our industry. To meet the demands of the ever-increasing Green Building industry, as well as safeguard today's forests, several of our facilities have met the rigorous standards required in order to earn Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC)® Chain of Custody Certification. Our FSC compliance was audited by SCS Global Services. SCS specializes in forest management and chain-of-custody certification under the most reputable certification schemes. They are one of the world's premier certifiers, from timber legality to full FSC certification.

When you select items that have been certified using standards established by an independent organization such as FSC, you can be assured those products come from responsibly managed forests. You are helping to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of today’s generations as well as tomorrow’s. Choosing products made from these materials can also be used to earn points in the NAHB’s Model Green Home Building and other state and local green building programs.
