On a journey towards environmentally certified wood
Alongside working with some of the most innovative designers and high-quality materials, Carl Hansen & Søn has a long-standing commitment to driving sustainable development.
We are committed to using only environmentally certified wood by 2025, thereby ensuring that the wood we source comes from responsibly managed forests and sawmills. Today, we have more than 75 design icons available in FSC™ certified wood (FSC C135991) and we are continually working to include more. Newly launched Carl Hansen & Søn designs are always crafted in FSC™-certified wood.
By sourcing FSC™-certified wood, we ensure that forests are responsibly harvested, while protecting other plants, the animals of the forests and the people working in and living off the land. This is our commitment to the future of the planet - crafting quality design that lasts for generations, made from sustainably sourced wood.
Carl Hansen & Søn is certified to produce FSC™-certified furniture. Up to 90% of the wood we use in our products is FSC™-certified. The remainder derives from non-certified sustainable forestry.
