Wood for palleting

Weterings uses a considerable amount of wood for packaging PVC pipe.

Our suppliers have proved that they only supply us with timber from regulated forests within the EU that complies with all relevant EU directives. The sources of this wood are checked independantly.

However, it is without a quality mark such as PEFC or FSC. The reason for this is that it is impossible to switch to these qualities because these types of wood are not produced for packaging purposes. PEFC or FSC wood is mainly produced for the furniture industry, for example. The process of converting certified wood into packaging material is so inefficient (waste, energy, etc.) that sustainability is actually affected.

In addition, the PEFC or FSC markings have only limited advantages over standard EU requirements.
