As trees grow, they absorb and store carbon dioxide emissions, mitigating the effects of global warming and climate change. Sustainable harvesting practices, which prioritise replanting and forest health, ensure that trees are cut at the appropriate times, contributing to increased forestation and the preservation of vital ecological functions.


Wood has many eco-friendly characteristics that set it apart as a sustainable material. From its natural origins to its renewable nature, recyclability, reusability, and repairability, wood embodies a spectrum of environmentally conscious attributes By choosing wood, individuals and industries alike contribute to a greener future and sustainable living practices.


Wood is the epitome of zero-waste production practices. Following wood processing, each stage yields valuable by-products that can be repurposed and reused across a range of applications. This efficient utilisation not only minimises waste but also maximises the resourcefulness of this sustainable material, contributing to a more environmentally conscious approach to production.



Wood should be the first choice in the construction of buildings and houses. Compared to other widely used materials such as steel or concrete, producing and processing wood uses less energy, and the wood life cycle has a much lower impact on the environment. Besides being strong, wood also acts as a great thermal and acoustic insulator. Wood is durable, and it practically lives and ages with us, creating a patina as part of its character.


Numerous studies have shown the positive effects of wood on both physical and mental well-being. Integrating wood and indoor plants into living and working environments not only adds natural warmth and coziness but also promotes a sense of calm, helping to reduce stress and maintain lower blood pressure levels. Additionally, highly absorptive wood surfaces exhibit strong antibacterial properties, effectively stopping the growth of and killing harmful bacteria that come into contact with them.


As a responsible company, we try to maximize wood’s social, economic, and environmental value both now and for future generations. We work constantly to improve our business processes to minimize our own environmental impact. We support a green world economy, the alignment of the economic growth with the demands of environmental protection, and the creation of a new sustainable social model which is changing the global position of forestry.

VALASAHA and its two subsidiaries – Tilian and Millwood are proud holders of the FSC® certification, declaring that the forests, harvested wood, and subsequent products that we work with are grown and processed sustainably and from proven sources.


VALASAHA and its two subsidiaries – Waltors and Tarwin are proud holders of the FSC® certification, declaring that the forests, harvested wood, and subsequent products that we work with are grown and processed sustainably and from proven sources. 

FSC® is a globally recognized certificate guaranteeing the sustainability of fragile forest ecosystems. Today more and more companies are considering responsible forest management, which must preserve biodiversity and its associated values, water resources, soil, and unique and sensitive ecosystems and landscape features, thereby maintaining the forest’s ecological functions and integrity, and VALASAHA is no exception.

We work in accordance with Forest Stewardship Council® standards (FSC-C157694). This certificate guarantees that the wood we supply has not been harvested illegally, and comes from forests managed in a close-to-nature manner. The FSC® certificate also ensures a fair wage, job security, and opportunities for educating people who work in the forest and in product processing. Regular audits by independent accredited certification organizations serve to guarantee the right to present this international certificate.


PEFC is the world’s largest forest certification system. PEFC, through the promotion of sustainable forest management, ensures throughout the forest product supply chain that timber and non-timber forest products are produced in compliance with the highest environmental, social, and ethical standards. Thanks to the eco-label, customers and consumers can identify products from sustainable forests. The PEFC Consumer Chain of Custody (CoC) certification, which we use at VALASAHA, is a mechanism for tracking certified materials from forest to the finished products, which ensures that wood, wood fibers and nonwood forest products contained in products can be traced back to certified forest. C-o-C certification is an important part of the PEFC system, as it ensures that forest product declarations are credible and verifiable throughout the supply chain. C-o-C certification is used to certify the entire value chain of forest products.
