Granule 777 endorses sustainable forest management by supplying itself locally with rigorously certified wood fibre. The use of this certified fiber, which need in energy to produce those wood pellets is strictly followed, rises responsible forest management to another level.
By using eco-certified wood pellets instead of fossil fuels to generate electricity, European utility companies are significantly reducing their carbon footprint and are thus able to show a positive carbon balance that meets European Union (EU) regulations.
EU standards require that wood pellet producers use only wood fiber from sustainable forestry operations. To meet this requirement, Granule 777 Inc. has conducted an in-depth analysis of its fiber sourcing and is proud to publish its Supply Base Report.
