ECOLOGICAL WORK, BEST PRODUCTS

Environmental ethics

Wood is such a great resource as worthy of respect.
FCA adopts sustainable production methods that reduce emissions and the use of raw material.

  • 100% recycled packaging

    Entirely recycled packaging is used: the product is well protected and the environment thanks!

  • Reduced emissions of dust and CO2

    FCA is well below the limits set by law for inland dust and CO2 emissions. The oversized pipelines lead to a considerable change of air, to protect the health of workers.

  • Material usage optimization

    Using wood as a primary source, respecting the problem of deforestation.
    FCA works the wood and avoids wastage: the thin cut exploits all available material, manufacturing scraps are re-used for new products.

  • Floor heating

    The entire structure is equipped with floor heating adjusted in height, which avoids the dispersion of heat upwards and thus significantly reduces consumptions.

Deeper roots, stronger trees
