Proudly delivering environmentally sustainable products

As an importer of wood based products we at LI Surfaces must be sure that the products we are sourcing are sustainable, quality products. If we were to promote a product that does not consider the environmental ramifications of producing wood based products, this would reflect poorly on us as a company.

Sustainability matters

In part one of this week’s two part newsletter, we look at Sonae Araucos’ INNOVUS wood-based product and take a deeper look into the process and procedures they have in place to create a better world.

Next time we will be looking at our DUROPAL range of products.

Read on to discover what they are doing and how we can make small changes to become more sustainable ourselves.


TAKING WOOD (people and the planet) FURTHER

Sonae Arauco (INNOVUS) is one of the world’s leading producers of wood solutions, a natural, renewable and recyclable raw material.

Since its inception, the company has focused on developing sustainable wood solutions with high added value for construction, furniture, and interior design, from the most standard to the most demanding from a technical point of view.

Forest Research and Development (R&D)

INNOVUS aspires to be a global reference in a context of greater demand for sustainable solutions, where wood serves as a great alternative to other materials.

In this regard, the company has been working on an ambitious and innovative strategy for forests in Portugal, leading R&D projects or integrating work groups whose purpose is to develop and ensure the transfer of knowledge for the management of this natural asset, and thereby ensuring its sustainable development.

Recycling: Nothing is lost, everything is transformed

Wood recycling is one of INNOVUS most strategic investments. We currently have an ambitious strategy underway to increase the incorporation of recycled wood up to 70% in some of our industrial units.

Forests and forest-based industries are an integral part of the response to the challenge of climate change. Taking only European forests into consideration, an overall positive effect of around -806 million tonnes of carbon* captured annually is estimated, corresponding to 20% of all emissions from fossil sources in the European Union.
