Tropical Timber Purchasing
PlaceMakers is committed to ensuring the Tropical Timbers sold in its stores are supplied from approved sources of verified legal origin.
As members of the New Zealand Imported Tropical Timber Group (NZITTG), PlaceMakers has committed to the policy whereby, as a member of NZITTG, we will only purchase and sell Tropical Timbers and products made from Tropical Timbers (including Kwila), from independently approved sources of verified legal origin.
The bodies responsible for verification of Tropical Timbers (including those from Indonesia) which NZITTG members and PlaceMakers recognise are:
- Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
- Program for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC)
- CertiSource (CS)
- Smartwood (Rainforest Alliance)
- Malaysian Timber Certification Council (MTCC)
Talk to our PlaceMakers staff about the supply of independently approved and verified Tropical Timbers and product and decking options.
