Certification underscores committment to ‘green’

Haywood Builders Supply has recently been certified by the Smartwood Program of the Rainforest Alliance for the “Forest Stewardship Council” (FSC) as a duly licensed “Chain-of-Custody provider of FSC wood products.

Haywood Builders Supply is one of a small number of independent full-service building supply retailers in North Carolina to have achieved this certification. FSC Chain-of-Custody certification helps customers choose products that contribute to global conservation, community well-being and economic stability.

Obtaining this FSC certification continues and increases the efforts of Haywood Builders Supply Company toward being a “green” leader in both the industry and the community.  The company was one of the early participants in the LBM Journal sponsored program to become a “Certified Green Dealer” by having 100 percent of its sales personnel complete that training. More recently, several of Haywood’s sales representatives attained recognition from NHBA as “Certified Green Professionals” upon training sponsored by the National Home Builders Association.
