Rules that increase sustainability
Do you consider sustainable products important when selecting advertising materials? Then a STABILA rule is the perfect choice. As a manufacturer of quality rules since 1889, the responsible use of wood, a natural resource, is very important to us.
This is why we had our production site certified in accordance with strict PEFC criteria and have supplied folding rules with a PEFC seal since 2019. The seal guarantees that the wood we use comes from sustainable forestry and the woodlands are being preserved for future generations. Since 2020, we have continuously and consistently been converting our entire range of rules. Many product variants are now only available with a PEFC seal.
Would you like to know if the model you require is already available with a sustainable seal? Simply give us a call or send us a message. We look forward to hearing from you.
WHAT DOES PEFC STAND FOR?
PEFC is the abbreviation for the international "Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes".
PEFC has one objective – the global improvement of forest utilisation and management. All of the national systems base their content on the resolutions set out at the conferences that followed the Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit.
From the raw material through to the ready-for-use end product, the entire production process is certified, transparent and checked by independent experts.
PEFC prevents long transport routes and thus CO2 emissions. Only as many trees will be cut down as can grow again, enabling the woodland to retain its natural protective function.
The PEFC standards ensure sustainable forest management. The woodland will remain a safe habitat for animals and plants. The biodiversity and natural function of the forest is preserved.
PEFC guarantees high standards with respect to occupational safety and workers’ rights.
The PEFC seal on the product provides both the recipient and user with "visible" assurance of proactive environmental protection and high standards with respect to occupational safety and workers’ rights.
