In 2009 the company obtained the ISO 14001 certificate for environmental standards. This meant reducing to the maximum any use of environmentally harmful products, focusing on recycling, a sustainable management of the waste, and investing our efforts on energy efficiency, hereby minimizing our impact on the environment.
To ensure our customers that the timber used in our furniture comes from responsibly managed forests, Martínez Otero is certified PEFC and FSC ® Chain of Custody, and thus participate in sustainable forest management.
FSC ® is sponsored by Greenpeace and the World Wide Foundation for Nature (WWF). PEFC certification is a system promoted by government groups and the European timber industry.
