Fortune Brands meets or exceeds the standards of the Lacey Act, which prohibits importing, purchasing or acquiring products made from illegally logged woods. In addition, our cabinets business follows guidance from the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), which aims to ensure that international trade in plants is legal, sustainable and traceable. Approximately 70% of our cabinets’ solid wood is supplied from North America.
As a leader in the cabinets industry, we are also committed to using our expertise to lead improvements in responsible wood sourcing. In 2020, MasterBrand formed a sustainability committee focused on advocating for improved responsible forestry practices and increased transparency in the wood supply chain.
While MasterBrand Cabinets is Fortune Brands’ largest user of wood, Therma-Tru Doors and Fiberon also use wood materials. Nearly half of Therma-Tru’s wood comes from wood suppliers that participate in sustainable forestry certifications, such as the Sustainable Forestry Initiative and the Forest Stewardship Council. Fiberon uses 100% recycled wood – along with recycled plastic – to manufacture composite deck boards and cladding products.
