Responsibly managed wood
Starting 2014, all of BRIO wooden toys will be made from FSC certified wood.
What does FSC mean?
Wood is a one of our company’s strongest signifiers, and many of our wooden products have become icons in the world of toys.
But with the use of wood comes a responsibility, a responsibility of making sure that our products aren’t produced at the expense of the environment.
From 2014, one hundred percent of our wooden toys will be made from FSC certified wood. The FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is a non-profit organisation that safeguards, monitors and encourages sustainable forest management. A FSC certification means that all the wood we use at BRIO is traceable and that it originates from responsibly managed forests. It guarantees that the raw materials do not come from illegal logging sources. An FSC certification also represents an ongoing effort to improve forest workers’ conditions.
Our company is focused on seeing children develop through play, but they should be able to do so in a world where we have taken responsibility for a sustainable future. And that is why we will never stop working to improve our environmental performance.
