Exotic Wood Purchasing Policy
Background and Strategy:
It is Armstrong’s policy to ensure responsible management of wood from the forests where our raw materials are harvested.
Armstrong is committed to the development of environmentally responsible forest products and to properly manage the environmental
impact we have on our industry.
Armstrong’s Exotic Wood Purchasing Policy Requires:
- Working with suppliers to ensure that the wood we purchase is lawfully sourced and meets applicable requirements regarding
forest management, manufacturing and trade rules.
- Taking steps toward third-party verification that our vendors are sourcing their wood lawfully and using environmentally sustainable
forest management practices.
- Improvements in our manufacturing processes to enable us to produce wood flooring with less lumber.
