Setra's aim is to contribute to deforestation with the lowest possible environmental impact and minimum amount of damage to the remaining trees. Below you can find all of our certificates and what requirements must be met in order to become certified in various areas.
There are two systems for certification of forests and forest products - PEFC and FSC®. These are not interchangeable and Setra is certified to both systems. In 2012, 39 percent of our raw sourced timber material was certified according to either FSC® or PEFC but also the raw material that is not certified, meets the requirements of the FSC® and PEFC.
ISO 14001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system.
ISO 9001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS).
All of Setra's drying processes meet the requirements for heat treatment of wood (KD 56°C/30 min) and can therefore deliver sawn timber to manufacturers that wish to produce packaging according to ISPM 15.
Some of Setra's units are also approved for the manufacturing of packaging according to the demands in ISPM 15.
