DECOTEC is becoming more involved every day and is making progress in taking charge of its environmental impact in order to participate in the protection of the planet’s resources.

Des ressources d’origines contrôlées

We pay attention to the origin of the materials used to manufacture our bathroom furniture.

DECOTEC certified PEFC

The wooden raw materials used by DECOTEC are PEFC (European Certified Forest Program) certified, in a responsible approach to sustainable forest management, where each felled tree is replanted. Furthermore, the wood used to make our furniture helps fix atmospheric CO2.

This label mainly certifies European woods and those from temperate zones (Europe and South America). This certification is renewed every five years.

We have also invested in a wood cutting machine which optimizes cutting; so we cut down our wood needs as closely as possible to make our furniture, mindful of preserving limited resources.

In addition, the remaining cuts are reused.

The possibility of custom manufacturing contributes to our desire to promote a mode of consumption that is more respectful of resources, both human and natural. DECOTEC chooses to produce as close as possible to its customers in order to limit its ecological impact.
