Skram strives to minimize waste and the use of noxious chemicals, and to use responsibly harvested materials. As part of its ongoing program to mitigate the harmful effects associated with manufacturing, skram uses non-toxic adhesives and industrial-strength, low-VOC, water-based polyurethane finishes. Additionally, the company is committed to broadening it’s offering of certified timber options as they become available in consistent quantity and quality. Locally harvested materials also constitute an important source of timber for skram. In 2008, the company transitioned to a LEED contributing, formaldehyde-free, 100% pre-consumer recycled content substrate in veneered products.
