Over the last two years, Scanteak sources only for sustainable teak wood from Indonesia for its furniture. "We insist on getting wood that has been legally harvested," says Jamie Lim, its regional marketing director. The timber mills that Scanteak sources from have to produce certification which proves their sustainable practices.
"Sustainable wood is more expensive than non-compliant wood, but at Scanteak, we feel it is our social responsibility to care for the environment," says Ms Lim.
