Our responsibility in the value chain
Here you can see the various steps in the value chain, as well as how Woodsafe can contribute to making each step as climate-smart as possible.
We constantly work to review and, if possible, improve each step and place greater demands on our partners, in order to contribute to improved sustainability throughout the chain.
01. Business partner
- High demands on suppliers to enter into a collaboration with an extensive process for supplier evaluation and follow-up.
- Close dialogue and cooperation to achieve goals regarding human climate goals, rights and working environment.
- Forest raw materials must come from sustainable forestry and new trees must be planted, which, when they start to grow, bind carbon dioxide again.
02. Sustainable forest raw material & biological diversity
- Requirements for sustainable forest management.
- Responsibility for biological diversity and regrowth.
03. Inbound and outbound transport, Scope 3
- Indirect impact through emissions of greenhouse gases from transport to and from our operations.
- In dialogue with partners and transport suppliers, work for joint deliveries and hire a transport supplier with a clear sustainability strategy, including conversion from fossil fuels to biofuel.
04. The refinement process
- High requirements for the necessary permits for the introduction of chemicals and handling of waste.
- High demands on sustainable and renewable energy.
- Direct impact through production emissions to air.
- Indirect impact through the production's energy consumption and use of fire impregnation chemicals.
05. Stakeholders & transport
- Gives the customer opportunities to supply the construction industry with fire-resistant wood products to reduce the climate footprint.
06. Downstream users
