Okamura formulates a policy for sustainable use of timber

Tuesday 27 October 2009

A major Japanese office furniture maker, Okamura Corp., announced on October 27, 2009, that the company and its affiliates formulated the Okamura Timber Use Policy, which aims to eliminate the use of illegally logged timber and ensure efficient use of timber and wood-based materials from properly managed forests for their products. The company intends to consider forest ecosystems, and to promote the conservation of biodiversity and sustainable use of trees through their core business based on this policy. Following the formulation of this policy, Okamura and affiliated companies plan to expand production using domestic and local timbers. In addition to the existing checks for timber legality and accreditation of timber companies, they intend to reexamine legality, tree species, country of origin and other criteria in fiscal 2009, for all of their wood products, which are targets of the Green Purchasing Law.
