What does FSC certification mean?
AMERICAN shutters® is the only company in South Africa with an FSC® certifiication for a shutter range.
“FSC® is an independent, non-profit organisation that protects forests for future generations. We are an open, membership-led organisation that sets standards under which forests and companies are certified. Our membership consists of three equally weighted chambers — environmental, economic, and social — to ensure the balance and the highest level of integrity.” (FSC® website)
Our White Teak Shutters are made from timber sourced from certified Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) plantations, making it one of our most eco-friendly ranges.
