PEFC™ and FSC® certifications stand for a sustainable and environmentally correct use of the world’s wooded areas. PEFC™ is short for "Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes", and FSC® stands for “Forest Stewardship Council“. These non-profit organisations active worldwide have been striving for years for ecological and socially correctly produced wood to come to market. Otto Vertrieb GmbH & Co. Ltd is PEFC™ as well as FSC® certified since 2013 and must undergo regular and rigorous audits to check each and every facit of its business. Products sold and certified by us have one major thing in common: the guarantee that the wood can be traced throughout the entire Chain of Custody, from the wood’s origin right up to the completion of the product. In this way, we can comprehensively document and oversee the flow of materials as and when needed. A certified product by Otto-Vertrieb also stands for sustainable forestry and protection of nature!

EFRE - Benefits

The building that hosts our corporate offices features an innovative fuel-cell system model BlueGEN, which allows us to produce electricity and heat directly on site, thereby ensuring the highest level of efficiency. The system is kept in operation all year round and it can produce, with an electrical power of 1.5 kW, approximately 13,000 kWh of electricity per year. Such a high level of electrical efficiency helps reduce pollutant emissions by more than 50% compared to drawing power from the mains. For more information, visit the website www.efre.nrw.de.
