Being a manufacturer using an exhaustible natural resource, we are very aware and concerned about our impact on the environment as well as our legacy for future generations. We believe in minimizing our carbon footprint on our planet, and preserving and replenishing as much as we can for the benefit of future generations. This is our motivation to proactively ensure the survival and welfare of our forests.
To this end, Ekowood, through our parent company TSH, has taken up the responsibility of managing a sustainable forest in Sabah, totalling 300,000 acres. A significant tract of this land has been set aside for a 13-year forest plantation development program.
In addition to that, TSH is also involved in generating green energy in the form of biomass and biogas power. Both biomass and biogas are environmentally friendly and are Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects.
Rest assured that your beautiful floors are not contributing to irresponsible deforestation. Having set high standards for ourselves, we have also been recognized by The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC® CoC certified with certificate number: SGS-COC-001265 and logo code number: FSC C006543) as well as the Malaysian Timber Certification Council (MTCC) for being responsible and environmentally friendly manufacturers.
