“Quality, design and functionality are important elements of Rationel’s products, but for us it is equally important that our products are sustainable, as such all of Rationel products are manufactured using responsibly sourced materials.
During production, Rationel treat all windows and doors with “System 2 ECO” (water based system), which comprises of eco-friendly impregnation, painting and finishing ensuring the long life of our products.
Rationel use the finest pinewood from FSC® certified timber from northern European forests, where reforestation is carried out systematically and tree planting is higher than the amount cut down. Furthermore all material suppliers sign a declaration, which sets out a number of standards ensuring care for the environment and for the labour used.
Rationel is certified according to the FSC’s global labelling scheme for sustainable wood and paper. The FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is an international not-for-profit organization, which makes it possible to buy wood and paper products with a clear conscience. Companies all over the world comply with the FSC’s guidelines for sustainability and the legality of their production. The FSC label guarantees that, due to our production, no more trees than the forest is able to reproduce are felled, that wildlife and vegetation in the forests are protected, and that forest workers receive training, safety equipment and a decent wage. The FSC is the only global labelling scheme, which is widely supported by green organisations such as WWF, Greenpeace and Nepenthes, plus social organisations such as BAT and companies all over the world”.
