VENCON USA LLC, - Greener Flooring for Tomorrow announced today the
introduction of a “green” laminate flooring program that has been certified by the Forest
Stewardship Council (FSC). The FSC is an internationally recognized organization of
environmental and social groups, the timber trade, worker’s indigenous peoples

created a global forest certification system operating in more that 70 countries with
millions of acres of certified forest and a global market worth more than $5 billion”.

FSC certified product the flooring consumer is assured it comes from environmentally
sustainable forests, provide economic benefits for local peoples and are in compliance
with all local and international laws.

produced from legally logged wood species, are secured from sustainable forests and

industry leaders must take a proactive and thoughtful approach to the responsible
management of our valuable natural resources to insure that our children and their
children will be able to enjoy our world today and in the future.
