FSC® Means:

Responsible Forest Management

Our Values are firmly rooted in the principles and criteria of the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®), that helps ensure we have forests for all, forever.

Protecting water quality!

 

Prohibiting highly hazardous chemicals!

 

Limiting clearcuts to protect forest ecology!

 

Protecting rare old growth!

 

Preventing loss of natural forest cover!

 

Protecting customary rights and resources of indigenous people and local communities!

Certified Wood Products Inc. has provided FSC®-certified lumber for thousands of LEED® projects and multiple The Living Building Challenge™ projects throughout North America.  We have exported FSC®-certified forest products internationally as well.


We’re very successful in sourcing hard-to-find forest products and specialty items.

The majority of CWPI’s inventory is available as certified according to the rules of the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®), the highest standard for responsibility in forest products available in the world today.

The Forest Stewardship Council® is an independent, non-profit, global organization that promotes responsible forestry. A standards-setting body for a forest certification system, the FSC®, through its Principles and Criteria for Forest Management, has established the highest standards for environmentally, economically and socially responsible forestry. FSC® forest management standards consider key environmental issues such as minimizing clear-cuts, striving to eliminate pesticide use, and the protection of forests with high conservation value (ones that contain certain rare and endangered species), while remaining an economically attractive system to business. Products that come from well-managed forests are certified as responsible and may be used in building projects that require wood with an environmental pedigree.

CWPI believes that the world’s forests are best protected when managed under the FSC®’s Principles and Criteria. To promote the cause of responsible forest management, CWPI actively participates in the FSC® system and strives to advance the visibility of, and trade in FSC®-labeled forest products.

Every time we purchase a forest product, we make a decision about how well our forests are managed.  If a product is FSC®-certified, you can feel confident that you are directly supporting the gold standard of forest management.  Forest managers are enabled to do their best work when consumers reward their effort!

Along with many independent pioneers and practitioners of “green” building techniques, the U.S. Green Building Council and its LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System™ has taken the lead in defining what a responsible building is. LEED® is a voluntary, consensus-based national standard for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings.

LEED® provides a complete framework for assessing building performance and meeting sustainability goals. Based on well-founded scientific standards, LEED® emphasizes state-of-the-art strategies for sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.

The Living Building Challenge™ is a building certification program, advocacy tool and philosophy that defines the most advanced measure of sustainability in the built environment possible today and acts to rapidly diminish the gap between current limits and the end-game positive solutions we seek.

Corporate Social Responsibility

At CWPI, we believe we have a responsibility to make a positive impact on the environment, the community, and the world.  We actively support Feed My Starving Children, MN Adult & Teen Challenge, Prison Fellowship and Minnesota Family Council.
