What Are FSC Certified Cabinets?

B&R Construction in Los Angeles is a family-run business that carries name brand cabinetry and also offers custom cabinetry at affordable prices. There are many reasons to choose B&R, and if you care about the environment one of the best reasons is that the company designs and builds FSC certified cabinets.

The FSC–Forest Stewardship Council– is an international and independent (non-governmental) nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote environmentally sound, socially beneficial and economically prosperous management of the world’s forests.

The main FSC tools for achieving this are standard-setting and independent certification and labeling of forest products. FSC certification provides assurance that the earth’s forests are being managed to the highest environmental and social standards.

There are two types of FSC certification: Forest management certification is the basic building block of the FSC system. It is a voluntary process for verifying responsible forest practices in all types of forests and plantations across the world.

FSC Chain-of-Custody (CoC) certification traces the path of products from forests through the supply chain. FSC chain of custody is a tracking system that allows manufacturers and traders to demonstrate that timber comes from a forest that is responsibly managed in accordance with the FSC Principles and Criteria. B&R Construction has held a CoC certification since 2008.

FSC Controlled Wood helps ensure that manufacturers and traders avoid material that comes from:

1. Illegally harvested forests;

2. Forests in which violation of traditional and                 civil rights occur;

3. Forests in which High Conservation Values are            threatened by management activities;

4. Natural and semi natural forests where conversion       occurs; and

5. Forests in which genetically modified                         organisms (GMOs) are used.

B&R Construction cares about the environment, and about YOU. They manufacture your custom cabinets at their own facility, and offer a wide variety of stylistic choices and price options. In addition, B&R provides individualized and attentive customer service (unlike the big box stores). But B&R does much more than cabinets. They offer complete design services and a variety of products including tile, countertops, bathroom vanities and even kitchen appliances. If you’d like to find out more, please contact us.
