ProBuild Holdings announced that 59 of its facilities nationwide have received Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain of Custody Certification. This certification enables these locations to sell FSC-certified materials.
According to the ProBuild, the nation’s largest professional building materials supplier, FSC certifications complement ProBuild’s commitment to sustainability through its ProEarth platform. ProEarth is a comprehensive sustainability platform that guides how ProBuild does business. ProEarth’s three platform elements include: operational excellence, product stewardship and social responsibility.
“We have made a commitment to become FSC certified in markets where customer demand dictates,” said ProBuild CEO, Bill Myrick. “We support all types of wood certification programs so that we approach sustainability in a measurable, accountable and responsible way. This is only one step in our much longer journey to green as a company.”
An FSC product label ensures that the forest products used are from responsibly harvested and verified sources.
“Our customers want high-quality green products from a professional, one-stop resource,” said Lisa Peterson, ProBuild’s vice president, marketing and communications. “FSC provides that credible certification so our customers know they are using responsibly harvested lumber.”
