The supplier agrees to this Code without amendment or abrogation, and it is the supplier’s responsibility to ensure that this Code is implemented. The supplier is responsible for informing his employees, and sub-suppliers about the requirements of this Code and shall report any suspected violation of this Code and/or applicable law.

At Bauwerk Group we are committed to do our contribution to guarantee the right of future generations to an intact planet. Our product is uniquely suited to support that effort: Wood is a natural and infinite resource – if managed sustainably.
Climate change is the biggest challenge of our time and increasingly apparent for us on our supply side. In view of our dependence on wood as a raw material, we are directly faced with the consequences of climate change on wood availability and quality. In general, climate change has an impact on cultivated species and on individual forests/trees in terms of growth. Furthermore, it impacts bug and beetle infestation and extreme weather events (storm wood).
Our impact on climate change is also determined by our wood sourcing decisions as well as our direct and indirect greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
