We have had a large batch of clients in Italy so far this year – the current total is 92 clients who have or are planning to move to Interface NRM. In the UK, things have been busy with certification, particularly FSC certification for the print industry. This seems to be really popular at the moment. We are currently right on the cusp of the new Forest Stewardship Council Chain of Custody Standards, and we have been busy with auditor training and familiarisation with out new checklist.
We had a strange request today: If I buy chairs from Romania to sell as FSC, does the wood need to come from an FSC certified forest? Really? Definitely? No exceptions? Really, definitely, certainly!!
