The philosophy of our procurement

Weitzer Parkett contributes to a positive ecological balance all the way along its value-added chain. That’s why we are so acutely aware of the origin of our wood when sourcing, and take care to ensure short transport routes.

Sourcing regional wood species

Weitzer Parkett uses timber almost exclusively from European forests managed on a sustainable basis. Around 50% of this comes from regions within 250 km of Weitzer Parkett, while the company sources just 10% of its timber from forests further than 750 km away. Weitzer Parkett abstains completely from using any tropical timber in the manufacturing of its products. The owner family of Weitzer Parkett privately sponsors Greenpeace forestry protection projects. The conservation of the last remaining virgin forests in Romania is an environmental concern of utmost importance to our managing directors.

No to tropical woods, yes to domestic woods!

Wood is a special raw material. It promotes well-being, contributes to a healthy room climate, and radiates warmth and comfort. Wood is not only the most environmentally-friendly floor covering there is, but it is the only construction material we have which grows back.

Konsequenter Verzicht auf Tropenholz

Die fortschreitende Abholzung der Tropenwälder verursacht größere Schäden als der weltweite Straßen-, Flug- und Schiffsverkehr. Darum sollte Parkett generell tropenholzfrei sein. Als einer der ersten großen Parketthersteller verzichten wir bereits seit Jahren gänzlich auf Tropenholz. Setzen auch Sie ein Zeichen gegen Tropenholz!
