Ways in which Copeland respects the environment in each piece of furniture they make:
- Use sustainably harvested hardwoods from the American Northern Forest, among the healthiest forests in the world, which are actually growing in terms of standing biomass.
- All lumber comes from within 500 miles of their factory.
- FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified.
- Work with the SmartWood program of the Rainforest Alliance, which requires members to work only with suppliers who can certify that the wood they sell comes from forests that are not threatened, do not have high conservation significance and do not contain genetically modified trees.
