Sustainability

Responsibility for the future

As far as we are concerned, sustainability means the manufacture of products by commercially viable processes that minimise the negative effects on the environment while simultaneously protecting both energy and natural resources.

As a company, as employees and as managers of Herba-Collection, we take responsibility for our products, for our environment and within our social setting.
We will increase yet further the efforts we make for a sustainable, fair world.
What we do here at Herba-Collection makes a genuine contribution, in the here and now, and for the future”.

FSC® certification

Our business has been FSC® certified since 2018. The certified products are always labelled with the FSC® logo in the catalogue.
We take on the responsibility for ensuring that these products are sold to our own customers in the Chain of Custody (COC) without being mixed in any way with non-certified goods. By doing this, we meet the tight requirements of the Forest Stewardship Council. Conscientious handling of the available resources and adherence to ethical principles are essential, as far as we are concerned.
