FSC® Certified by the Rainforest Alliance
Highland House Furniture and FSC® Chain of Custody Certification
The Forest Stewardship Council™ or FSC® is considered the Gold Standard around the world for responsible forest management. For many years we have bought FSC® certified materials but more recently we have worked with the Rainforest Alliance to become FSC® Chain of Custody Certified. We are proud to offer a portion of our product line that is FSC® CoC Certified. This means that the forests where the wood was grown was certified to conform to FSC® standards and that every one in the chain who processes the wood is FSC® Chain of Custody certified enabling us to sell these products to you with a valid claim of FSC® 100%.
Our FSC® CoC number is NC-COC-006366

The Rainforest Alliance is a non-governmental organization (NGO) with the published aims of working to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land-use practices, business practices and consumer behavior.
- Through a Supply chain risk assessment the Rainforest Alliance helped us see potential areas of risk and how we could change future buying practices
- We worked together to develop and implement a Responsible Purchasing Policy for Wood Products
- The Rainforest Alliance certified Highland House Furniture as FSC® Chain of Custody Certified
All of these efforts are intended to ensure our positive effect on the global supply chain for wood products, ensuring that this precious resource will be here for use and enjoyment of future generations. We feel very proud of progress made in our own company and the influence we have had on the wider global supply chain.
