Environmental certification is becoming increasingly important when it comes to entering developed markets. Canada is not an exception.
Euroshpon-Smyga (Rivne region) is one of the largest wood-processing factories in Ukraine. The company produces planed and spliced veneer, veneer for wrapping various wood products. Euroshpon-Smyga processes nearly 1500 cubic meters of wood monthly, 95% of products for export. The geography of exports includes 19 countries.
Euroshpon-Smyga had the first contact with Canadian partners in 2015. Since then, Ukrainian veneer is used to make Canadian furniture.
At a certain stage of development, the management of the company understood that further progress depends on meeting international standards. In particular, standard on a wood chain of custody oversight was important.
In 2018 CUTIS project co-financed FSC certification for PJSC “Euroshpon-Smyga”. The project contributed to expanding exports to Canada without additional negative environmental impacts in Ukraine.
