Renovation project of urban households using wood from green sources, exploited sustainably and having the corresponding certificate from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
The investment is financed purchase of certified wood for the rehabilitation of a couple of flats located in the center of Barcelona city. The materials used, as is standard in CANO projects are of high quality, carefully selected to respect the environment and sustainability throughout the process, both from procurement of materials to the recycling of the old materials replaced.
This action will also allow a significant improvement in the energy efficiency of the renovated homes, reducing the energy losses that existed from the previous isolation.
Rehabilitation of houses using ecological wood obtained from sustainable forest exploitation.
Wood is a natural, healthy, renewable and recoverable at the end of their life cycle material. This makes it a highly recommended construction material.
It has very good technical and biological characteristics; It is especially interesting because of its ability to regulate the hygrothermal characteristics of the interior of the buildings to present a "living" parallel structure formed by hollow microchannels that are able to absorb and evaporate water from the atmosphere.
It is also a traditional high quality material that provides such important qualities as the warmth of surfaces (very stable against changes in temperature). It is also a "healthy" material that does not cause damage to human health or the environment (in the absence of treatment or not agglomerated with other products) and is necessary for this important quality is maintained using natural and healthful substances in all cases (tails to form boards, protective and wood finishes).
The thermal conductivity is very low, 400 times less than steel and 12 times less than concrete, plus thermal expansion is very low (a great advantage over aluminum and PVC joinery). The fire performance of wood has very interesting features: it does not emit toxic gases during combustion and the stability of the structure is maintained for longer periods than other materials such as steel (material there to increase benefits if necessary, as intumescent) coatings.
The Forest Stewardship Council, better known by its acronym FSC is a non-governmental organization for accreditation and certification based in Bonn, Germany.
The official mission of the Council is "to promote environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world's forests." Individuals or organizations interested in sustainable consumption of wood, paper and other forest derivatives may seek to obtain a FSC certification of their products. The FSC certification is also used to demonstrate sustainable forest management.
Through consultative processes, FSC develops standards and policies for sustainable forest management, in addition to accredit certification bodies to evaluate candidates for forest certification.

Häfele is a company operating internationally to metal fittings and electronic locking systems. Globally, customers in the furniture industry as well as architects and designers love the competence and performance of Häfele.
Quality management and environment is an important integral part of the philosophy of Häfele. From its continuously improving, quality standards increase permanently.
The high standards of quality Häfele higlight: already in 1995 was conducted certification according to DIN ISO 9001 certification to DIN EN ISO 14001 certifies that Häfele continues to maintain respectful behavior from 2000 to the environment.
An active ecological and environmental protection not only reduces waste and avoids unnecessary emissions of pollutants, but also provides ecological and economic benefits for our customers by saving energy and materials. The continuous development of both systems in 2002 allowed the change in the procedure classic DQS-TIP (Trust Improvement Program) certification.
GABARRÓ, in his desire to improve, want to continue to carry to term a respectful and responsible policy to the environment and natural resources of the planet, as it has done over nearly 100 years of existence. For this reason has seen fit and necessary to sign the document that the Spanish Association of Importers of Wood - AEIM, which is a leading member, approved the General Assembly of the association held in 2005. This document entitled "Code of Good Environmental Practice" reflects our strong commitment to fair environmental practices and sustainable management of forests.
At the same time we must report that in order to continue to hold a respectful and responsible policy to the environment and natural resources of the planet, our company has obtained for Polinyà, Sabadell and Gavà (Barcelona) lumberyards, the Certification 'Chain of Custody "of the two systems most internationally recognized certification, which are:
• PEFC. (Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes)
• FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council)
The certificate number is PEFC Chain of Custody PEFC / 14-37-00029 and also the company meets the requirements specified in Appendix 4 standard PEFC ST 2002: 2010
The number of certified FSC® Chain of Custody is TT-COC-003620.
Both systems or formulas are totally and completely valid and have the same practical effect because it makes the certification of wood and the preservation of natural resources.
We hope that all our employees are fully aware of the policy of the company in its efforts to contribute to sustainability in the exploitation of natural resources on Earth, implementing stricter control on the extraction and exploitation of raw materials.
Thus help to avoid situations of risk to the possibility of carrying out illegal logging, exploitation of forests of high conservation value, protected areas, species included in the CITES list (according to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species Fauna and Flora), conversion of forest areas to other uses, areas of armed conflict, related social problems and human rights areas.
