Many consumers are concerned that the wood they buy causes environmental damage through deforestation and its wider effects: loss of communities, carbon emissions and the emergence of monocultures of soy or palm oil.
Many products are wood-based and their supply-chains contain hidden reputational risks: Paper, Viscose, Latex, Furniture or cellophane, for example.
Both regulations (like EUTR) and voluntary schemes (like FSC) aim to enforce effective and ethical sourcing.
But first you need to know where your timber comes from. String3 can profile specific products and pinpoint risks.How String3 can help
