Specialists in sawmilling & international marketing of quality forest products
Vanport International occupies a unique position in the international wood products supply chain. We create value by linking high-quality wood product producers throughout the world with high-value end users in Japan and Asian markets, providing unsurpassed quality, integrity and responsive market information.
Vanport is committed to sourcing wood products from certified sustainable sources.
Our Company continuously strives to implement and achieve the FSC®
and PEFC® CoC Standards. As such, we implement our best efforts to
avoid selling and marketing wood products that are:
· Illegally harvested
· Harvested in violation of traditional and civil rights
· Harvested where global conservation priorities are threatened
· Harvested in natural forests being converted to plantations or non-forest uses
· Harvested from forests in which genetically modified trees are planted
Vanport has developed and adopted appropriate documents, manuals and procedures to help guide its staff on compliance for our Chain of Custody requirements. We are committed to annually monitor and review the effectiveness of our policies and associated programs to continually improve and broaden the practice of sustainable forestry and sawmilling.
