ISO 9001 is a strategic component that defines requirements to Quality management systems, standardizing operations, promotes monitoring and tracking of process which, following the organizational hierarchy model, favors a better integration between the different sectors of the company.
In June 2016 Araupel received the ISO 9001 approval, an accomplishment that certifies the high standards of our Quality management systems and the synchrony between different sectors of the company. Thus, Araupel joined a selective group of companies that holds this highly estimated certificate, and will keep following the path for continued improvement.
Forest Stewardship Council® – FSC®
The Certification Forest Stewardship Council® – FSC® considered of major recognition and importance in the global context in the forest product industry. The FSC certifies Forest Management, ensuring best practices in the forest, and Chain of Custody which encompasses the industrial processing.
The certifications attend to the FSC principles and criteria: environmentally appropriate, protecting and maintaining natural communities and high conservation value forests; socially beneficial, respecting the rights of workers, communities and indigenous peoples; and economically viable, building markets, adding best value, and creating equitable access to benefits.
Regarding the consumer market demands and seeking excellence of its social and environmental responsibilities, Araupel acquired in 2001 the Chain of Custody certification.
FSC Chain of Custody certification verifies that FSC certified material is identified through this chain and allows the company to label its FSC products, which in turn enables consumers to identify and choose products that support responsible forest management.
