Sustainability Commitment from our CEO
Dear fellow employees:
Boise Cascade Company’s commitment to sustainable forestry means we will continually achieve certification to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®), the Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification™ (PEFC™), and at select locations the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Chain of Custody, Due Diligence System Standards, and Trademark Use Rules, as well as comply with U.S. environmental, social, and health and safety laws and regulations, including those related to workers’ rights.
We have implemented certified, chain of custody fiber tracking systems at every production facility across the company to support our products and our customers. These certifications validate our commitment to responsible procurement practices and environmental stewardship. To help implement and achieve the above sustainable forestry standards, Boise Cascade Company has developed and adopted appropriate programs, plans, and procedures to guide its fiber procurement, supply chain tracking, and labeling activities.
Annually, we undergo independent third-party audits to test our ongoing compliance to each of the certification programs and our own policies and procedures. We also employ a formal management review process to evaluate the effectiveness of our programs and utilize the results to make improvements to our support systems.
Thank you for your dedication to this important corporate responsibility. Your support will help ensure that we maintain compliance with the standards and meet customer expectations related to our products and environmental performance.
Approved: May 1, 2015
Chief Executive Officer
