Environmental Certification

Here at V4, we understand the detrimental impact that deforestation can have on the environment.


We ensure that all the timber used for our floors is responsibly sourced from managed forests.


To go one step further, we have also gained third-party certification, including the Forest Stewardship Council®

and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification, so that you can have peace of mind that your wood floors are made using only legally sourced timber.


FSC promotes the responsible stewardship of forests around the world; covering nearly 500 million acres globally they are one of the most recognisable forest management solutions. With these principles for responsible forest management, you can be sure that when you see the FSC logo on our products, the materials used to make our beautiful wood floors were sourced responsibly from sustainable, well-managed forests in line with FSC standards and other controlled sources.


Look out for the FSC® logo on certified products.

PEFC is an international non-profit organisation that works to not only focus on sustainable forest management but working with large organisations, through to family-owned forests, looking at both environmental and socio-economical standards too. With over 800 million acres of forest being managed in compliance with their benchmarks, PEFC is the largest forest certification system in the world.

All our floors are in full compliance with the UK Timber Regulation / UKTR

We ensure that all of our timber products are in full compliance with the United Kingdom Timber Regulations (UKTR). These regulations are in place to ensure that the supply chain of the timber is not only complying with legal harvesting practices but encourages sustainable practices whilst supporting global forest governance.
