Dutch manufacturer Esthec has achieved ISO 14001 for the production of its composite decking.

“With this certification Esthec proves that it meets all the high standards that the business has set for it's own goals regarding continually reducing its environmental impact," claims the manufacturer.

The ISO 14001 specifies environmental management standards and it is an integral part of the European Union‘s environmental management scheme EMAS.

Esthec has long been claiming its material is 90 per cent recyclable and not a single tree needs to be felled to produce its decking product line.
