Danfor’s Environmental Policy Statement:

Danfor Export Ltd. recognizes the Canadian Standards Association (CSA), Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), International Organization for Standardization (ISO), Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) and European Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) as some of the leading programs using sound, scientifically based management principles in promoting sustainable forestry practices.


Our supplying sawmills must perform in strict compliance with all pertinent provincial regulations enforced by the B.C. Ministry of Forests and other government agencies such as the federal Environment Canada.  The sustainable, managed forests from which these mills draw their logs have filed long term Sustainable Management Plans, which include forest inventories; mapping measurement of growth rates; calculation of allowable harvest volumes; provisions for reforestation and protection from fire, insects, and disease as well as provisions to protect water quality, wildlife habitat, recreational values and more.

Forest regeneration which is required by law after a harvest has a 99% success rate within 10 years in Canada.

Wherever possible, Danfor Export Ltd. will obtain a certified product or the best possible information on the chain of custody of the product.

We and most of our suppliers are in the process of receiving one of the recognized types of Sustainable Forest Management Certifications, or Certified Chain of Custody (CoC) as may be required, which reflect the responsibility our forest industry feels towards managing our working, sustainable forests now and for the future.

Danfor Export Ltd., when custom manufacturing, will strive to obtain as raw material certified lumber and use manufacturing facilities with CoC.  Also we require these plants to operate under strict adherence to local, provincial and federal rules and regulations regarding workplace safety and environmental pollution standards.
