OUR ENVIRONMENT

As a building material supplier,NAV takes its environmental responsibly very seriously.

Raw, timber materials are ethically sourced from sustainably managed forests (and always have been).

NAV’s products are globally certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC), Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes™ (PEFC) and Global GreenTag™, and have achieved GreenStar® credits.

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) is an independent, not-for-profit, non-government organisation established to support environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world’s forests. Products with an FSC claim or label have been sourced from a responsibly managed forest.

NAV has achieved FSC® certification for a range of timber veneer products. Read More

The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC™) Council is the worldwide organisation promoting sustainable forest management through forest certification and labelling of forest-based products. Products with a PEFC™ claim/label deliver confidence that raw material originates in sustainably managed forests.

NAV has achieved PEFC™ Chain of Custody certification for a range of timber veneer products.

Global GreenTagCert™ is a third party, multi-criteria consensus-based and externally verified Type 1 ecolabelling program, developed to meet the requirements of specific green building rating tools.

NAV has achieved GreenTagCert™ certification for the NAVURBAN and NAVURBAN Diamond ranges which contribute to achieving Green Star Credits.

There is a growing global awareness of the impact building materials have on our environment. At NAV, we wholeheartedly welcome this growing awareness.
