Environmentally Sustainable

ExoDek Premium Batu Hardwood Decking comes from tropical hardwood forests in Indonesia which are essentially public lands, managed and protected by the Government of Indonesia. Natural forest utilization in Indonesia was started in the 1970s as a national development program.

Indonesia has designated all forest lands according to four classifications in order to ensure a sustainable balance between preservation and development. They have been named: production forests, conversion forests, protection forests, and conservation forests or national parks and wildlife refuges. About 113 million hectares have thus been set aside as permanent forests (for the production, protection and conservation groupings).

Two forest certification systems are in use at present in Indonesia: the Indonesian ecolabelling system developed by LEI (Lembaga Ekolabel Indonesia); and the Forest Stewardship Council scheme. Although the LEI and FSC certification systems were originally developed quite separately, the two organizations have been working to bring them closer together over the past ten years. LEI and the FSC signed a Memorandum of Understanding in September 1999, and strengthened this working agreement with a Joint Certification Protocol on September 20, 2000.

Nova and our affiliates have an ongoing commitment to the preservation and responsible utilization and management of our forest resources. We strongly encourage all of our ExoDek Premium Batu Hardwood Decking suppliers to follow best industry practices in order to minimize damage to the environment and ensure long term sustainability. Every piece of lumber purchased or sold by us is in compliance with all local, national and international laws and regulations.
