FROM OUR OWN FOREST
TO YOUR HOME

WITH FULL RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

160,000 acres of private certified forest

Triangulo Prefinished Hardwood Flooring is the final stop in a lengthy process that begins in an area of Brazil that is privately owned by Triangulo Industries.

Triangulo has invested in the preservation of its forest land for more than 40 years

On the forefront of innovation, Triangulo is the leader in preservation and knowledge of the Brazilian Rain Forest, the relationship with the environment and the commitment to the community within the Amazon region.

Investments made for implantation of the management system will assure the supply of current and future needs of the company.

Sustainable management guarantees adequate supply and revitalization of the forest

Selective harvesting guarantees only the species to be industrialized are cropped;

Only old growth trees – those with low absorption of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) – are used in the selection process and are replaced with younger ones thus meeting the needs for a better quality of the air and climatic stability.

Protecting the Ecosystem

Forests are living beings. They consist of a complex system in which all the components – vegetation, animals, soil, water and man - have a specific role in the natural equilibrium. Triangulo constantly monitors its forest area so that all those components are respected and their function preserved.

Triangulo's Social Contribution

As part of that system, the local community is taught to observe healthy environmental practices and protection of the ecosystem. The greatest contribution to the community is education; that is why Triangulo maintains a school for the children and a training center for adults and students from all over the country.

Beyond the forest

Triangulo’s healthy environmental practices expand beyond forestry management.

• Wood waste generated in the manufacturing of our products are used to generate heat for drying wood;
• Liquid effluents are treated and reused in our factory;
• Packaging of products are made with recycled materials;
• The packages of the products used in the industry – finish drums, plastic bags, cartons – are sent to recycling;
• Air quality is protected through an efficient system of filters that removes dust;
• Finish and adhesives used in the products do not emit formaldehyde or Volatile Organic Components (VOCs).

Reforestation

MORE TREES, A BETTER AIR QUALITY AND ASSURED WOOD SUPPLY

Triangulo’s reforestation programs in the Southern Region of Brazil have reached 3.2 million trees planted in 2013. Triangulo carries out research into plantation areas together with specialized institutions, monitoring their evolution, testing new species, and teaching the local communities how to protect the environment.
