Our Policy on Preservation of the World’s Forest

Dooge Veneers believes in ensuring long-term preservation of the world’s forests through supporting responsible production and market distribution.  We believe sustainability occurs when government policy-makers, universally approved stewardship and conservation organizations, and the global forestry industry work together responsibly.  That’s why we support and promote the work of organizations committed to finding collaborative, responsible solutions to the problems of deforestation–organizations like the Forest Stewardship Council, the Hardwood Forestry Fund, and the U.S. Green Building Council.

Dooge Veneers, Inc. avoids procuring and distributing veneer from areas where traditional or civil rights are violated, sustainability is threatened, genetically modified trees are planted, and wood is illegally harvested or taken from areas converted from natural forest to plantations or non-forest uses.

We are committed to making our best efforts to provide veneers from responsibly managed forests according to the Forest Stewardship Council’s (FSC) standards and to establish the origin of materials supplied to customers for the products affected.  If it proves impossible to identify the origin, we are committed to replacing it with veneer that can be sourced with confidence.

Our procurement policy requires us to verify and monitor our sources, to monitor the proportions of raw material that have not yet been verified, and to take steps to replace materials of unknown origin.  When you purchase veneer from Dooge you can be assured that we are taking care of the forest.
