Environmental Sustainability

What does FSC® Certified mean?

The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) is a non-profit organization committed to encouraging the responsible management of the world’s forests. To be FSC Certified means that your product has followed a specific and transparent procedure from the forest to the Paxton locations.

To be FSC Certified means you can:

• Be confident about the source of the material.
• Be confident that the material is third party audited.
• Be confident it helps to promote further supplies of accredited material.
• Be sure it results in future resources for future generations.
• Be confident that Frank Paxton Lumber Company will continue to support forestry initiatives.

The FSC program is the only certified wood system accepted by LEED for New Construction Credit.
Frank Paxton’s Chain of Custody Certification allows us to offer lumber (based on availability) as:
• FSC 100%
• FSC Mix
