Our Environmental Commitment
Turada Shingles operates all aspects of its forestry operations in accordance with all international and national conventions and regulations. We understand that healthy forestry practices are essential to the longevity of our industry. We support biodiversity and work with local government agencies to promote efficient, low impact logging to ensure sustainable forest management.
Our operation principles at SSWP conform with all international and national rules and regulations. We protect all species listed by the Convention on Trade in Endangered Species and are an environmentally responsible company that believes that wood is truly the only “Green” building material. Turada® produces and/or distributes lumber products that do not require chemical treatment for their exterior applications providing no adverse effects on the environments they are installed in. Our marine products are more durable than conventional options and resistant to marine borers. This equates to less material used and no chemicals in the water.
