For more than 50 years, being a responsible member of the global community has been woven into all aspects of our company culture. As our manufacturing and distribution networks have expanded worldwide, our impact on the environment has become an increasingly important concern for everyone at Wilsonart.
Several years ago, Wilsonart took the lead to reshape the entire supply chain for its paper source, which makes up 70% of its High Pressure Laminate (HPL) product lines. Our technical department worked with suppliers to ensure all source materials such as kraft, pulp, and decorative paper met stringent FSC certification requirements. At the onset of the project, no company in the industry had undertaken this endeavor. Wilsonart was the first North American laminate manufacturer to achieve Forest Stewardship Council® Chain of Custody Certification, providing thousands of SKUs of FSC® Mix Credit Certified HPL.
Our sustainability efforts incorporate not only our impact on the environment, but also our long-term commitment to providing high quality products, reliable services, secure jobs, and strong community support. This “full circle” journey will take many forms. Our immediate goals are as follows:
Eliminate unnecessary materials, processes, and waste from the products we make and sell.
Lead the industry in development and use of environmentally responsible materials.
Create an environment of excellence that fosters individual growth and engagement in community and industry development.
