Responsibly Sourced Wood
Responsibly Sourced Tin
We also work with wood. We started with a selection of products with wooden components which are produced in compliance with sustainability requirements under Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC). PEFC: The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) is an international non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to promoting Sustainable Forest Management through independent third-party certification. PEFC works to ensure that timber and non-timber forest products are produced with respect for the highest ecological, social and ethical standards. Customers will then be able to identify products from sustainably managed forests. The PEFC Chain of Custody Certification is a mechanism for tracking certified material from the forest to the final product to ensure that the wood, wood fibre or non-wood forest produce contained in the product or product line can be traced back to certified forests. We have successfully obtained the Chain of Custody Certification under the Malaysian Timber Certification Scheme (MTCS). The MTCS is a national timber certification scheme for sustainability developed and operated by the Malaysian Timber Certification Council.
Our main material is pewter, and pewter is a tin alloy (over 90% of the alloy is tin). We source our tin exclusively from Malaysia Smelting Corporation Bhd. (MSC), which is listed as a conformant smelter by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI). Visit http://www.responsiblemineralsinitiative.org/responsible minerals-assurance-process/smelter-refiner-lists/tungsten-smelters-list/conformant-tin-smelters/ for more information. Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) was previously known as the Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative. The Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP) was previously known as the Conflict-Free Smelter Program (CFSP). The shift to RMI happened in 2018 to align with OECD standards. “The flagship program of the RMI, the Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP) takes a unique approach to helping companies make informed choices about responsibly sourced minerals in their supply chains. Focusing on a “pinch point” (a point with relatively few actors) in the global metals supply chain, the RMAP uses an independent third-party assessment of smelter/refinery management systems and sourcing practices to validate conformance with RMAP standards. The assessment employs a risk-based approach to validate smelters' company-level management processes for responsible mineral procurement. The RMAP standards are developed to meet the requirements of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance, the Regulation (EU) 2017/821 of the European Parliament and the U.S. Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.” from http://www.responsiblemineralsinitiative.org/responsible minerals-assurance-process.
