FSC® Friday, a Business Forum created by the Forest Stewardship Council®, takes place every year to highlight the importance of responsible forest management and the role of FSC® in this matter.

"Forest For All Together" was the motto of this year's event, which took place on the 25th of September and was focused on sustainable choices for the construction and furniture sector.

Sonae Arauco’s Marketing Director, Michelle Quintão, was one of the speakers at the round-table discussion about "Innovation & Design: application of forest materials in the construction and furniture sector". Her intervention explained how Sonae Arauco’s sustainability strategy walks hand in hand with FSC®’s mission, namely referring that 100% of the wood used at Sonae Arauco comes from sustainably managed, certified and controlled sources.

According to Michelle’s words: “The market's confidence in the FSC® allows us to achieve a strategic position to respond to the environmental and reputation challenges that contemporary industries face: informed consumers are concerned with their choices, and select companies and products that use resources efficiently and responsibly”.

Sonae Arauco has a complete portfolio of wood-based products for the construction, furniture and interior design sectors and all our products ranges incorporate FSC® certified solutions.

Our commitment in using sustainably managed sources applies to the whole value chain and to the commercial practices and our products are a great source of carbon retention, helping to mitigate climate change.
