The Singapore Green Label is a seal of endorsement on its environmentally-friendly claims to prevent the abuse of green-washing. This has proved to be advantageous for Green Label certified products that have become more marketable and readily accepted by consumers or businesses when making a purchase.

Venturer Timberwork is proud to be the first Mass Timber Contractor to apply for PEFC Project Certification. 

The construction industry faces specific challenges when proving that the timber specified and supplied for individual construction projects is from certified sustainable sources. Chain of Custody certification is not always the most efficient option for these short-term projects involving different, uncertified contractors.

PEFC  solved this challenge with Chain of Custody certification for specified projects, or ‘project certification’, a mechanism for gaining independent verification of the use of certified timber in a one-off project with a limited duration.

Acknowledging the sustainable choices made within the construction industry is becoming increasingly important, as engineered wood such as CLT and glulam become more mainstream. Through PEFC project certification, it’s now possible to clearly and reliably demonstrate the decision to build with PEFC-certified timber.
