Colorado Doorways Receives Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certification
Company is first door distributor in Colorado to meet rigorous requirements

Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) in accordance with the rules of the Forest Stewardship Council A.C. (FSC) has granted Colorado Doorways the FSC Chain of Custody Certification.  This means that customers can be sure that specified products sold by Colorado Doorways are traceable to responsibly managed forests, and that there are documented controls in place to make sure that the integrity of the environment is upheld. By achieving this milestone and being the first door distributor in the states of Colorado and Wyoming to meet the program’s rigorous requirements, Colorado Doorways continues to remain at the forefront of the door and hardware industry. 

The FSC Chain of Custody Certification means that Colorado Doorways meets the strict tracking requirements for ensuring that products the company sells as FSC-certified come from a well-managed forest.  Among other things, well-managed forests:

  • Prohibit conversion of forests or any other natural habitat
  • Respect of international workers rights
  • Prohibition of use of hazardous chemicals
  • Respect of Human Rights with particular attention to indigenous peoples
  • Identification and appropriate management of areas that need special protection (e.g. cultural or sacred sites, habitat of endangered animals or plants)

This certification will be appreciated by architects and contractors who specify green building products for environmentally-conscientious building owners.  Chain of custody certification provides a guarantee about the production of FSC-certified products and certifies the path taken by raw materials from the forest to the consumer, including all successive stages of processing, transformation, manufacturing and distribution. Being FSC certified shows Colorado Doorways’ commitment to the environment and to the world in which we live and shows that we comply with the highest social and environmental standards on the market.
