Since the beginning, sustainability has been a top priority at Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products. Because our business relies on the manufacture of highly engineered wood products, we have specifically created processes that do not negatively affect the environment. We purposefully engage in sustainable practices to protect our planet's natural resources for future generations. From the use of recycled materials in the manufacturing of our products to workplace recycling and green initiatives, we have developed a culture that cherishes the Earth and its resources.
We continue to push forward on our environmental initiatives, looking for ways to improve our recycling practices and lower our carbon footprint. As part of that commitment, we submit our ResinDek® wood flooring panels for independent, third-party evaluations and certifications of our Earth-friendly processes each year.
To confirm our responsible use of the planet's natural resources, our ResinDek® engineered flooring panels are reviewed and validated annually by SCS Global Services. SCS is an international leader in third-party quality, environmental, and sustainability verification, certification, auditing, testing, and standards development. SCS certification helps organizations affirm and communicate their sustainability practices.
