Koala is proud to be working with the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) to ensure the wood we use in our furniture, like our sofa, sofa bed and bookshelves, is from an environmentally and socially responsibly managed forest.
At Koala we take our social and environmental responsibility seriously. In fact, sustainability is at the core of our identity, and we constantly strive to find sustainable ways to grow, while protecting the planet. During our design, and production processes we aim to make all our products in environmentally friendly processes using sustainably sourced materials. All our products then go through independent audits and laboratory testing to ensure they are safe for human use.
What is FSC®?
The FSC® “provide[s] the highest level of protection for rare and endangered forests and wildlife of any existing forest certification scheme…We set higher standards than any other forest certification scheme, which gives users the best assurance that certified forests are being managed responsibly.”
FSC® promotes the environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world’s forests by certifying responsible forest management, and provides the highest level of protection for rare and endangered forests and wildlife of any forest certification scheme.
In fact, FSC® is the only forest certification scheme endorsed by respected environmental organisations such as WWF, Greenpeace, The Wilderness Society and Planet Ark.
Using wood from FSC® certified forests provides Koala the confidence that the wood in our furniture meets the highest environmental, social and economic standards.
