Atlas Trade® is committed to leading the industry in minimising the impact of its activities on the environment.
In line with this, ethical and responsible sourcing of wood fibre used in our handles is a key focus. Atlas Trade® products are backed by FSC accreditation with all timber products sourced from certified sustainable forest operations.
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) is internationally recognised as the worlds most rigorous environmental and social standard for responsible forest management. It is endorsed by WWF and Greenpeace as the gold standard of forestry management certification.
