One of the major global warming culprits is deforestation of the world's forests. Approximately 20% of greenhouse gas emissions occur from deforestation and the burning of forests.
Patio furniture is one of JYSK's core areas. We therefore work actively to fight unsustainable and illegal logging and burning. Since 1990 JYSK globally has worked to increase its share of garden furniture produced from FSC®-certified wood.
FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is an internationally recognised non-profit organisation. FSC® label is your assurance of responsible logging and improved living conditions for local populations in some of the world's poorest countries.
