Chain of custody
Itlas intends to carry out its activities following a management model which guarantees the application and respect of the requirements of the chain of custody in accordance to the standards defined by the certifications PEFC and FSC ®.
The Organisation has always given maximum attention to its raw materials and using timber whose provenience can be ascertained in order to avoid controversial sources through their management. This commitment has led the company to adhere to the identification and traceability standards of the two main schemes in existence called PEFC e FSC ®. Respect for such schemes allows to guarantee to our clients the provenance of the timber whose origin is certified, respecting the environment and its renewable sources.
The choice to adopt a scheme rather than another was made exclusively based on the availability of the raw material on the market, which can be certified according to one scheme or another. A certification represents a strategic tool to increase consensus and visibility of the products and the company's procedures, at the same time contributing to a rational use of the non renewable sources of our planet.
The contribution of staff and collaborators towards reaching and maintaining this goal is crucial, therefore Management asks everyone to be completely involved.
Pay maximum attention to the use of timber coming from renewable sources in accordance with applicable regulations.
Train and mentor personnel at all levels in order to reach the highest quality standards in their performance and the involvement of all human resources from the plant, pursuing the constant improvement of professionalism and sense of responsibility.
Ensure that external collaborators involved in the Organisation's activities adopt management criteria which are in line with the principles of this Policy.
