Take advantage of our landscape opportunities
Italy doesn't have an important forest heritage, but it does have an important tradition in poplar plantations and has experience and research technology in the development of poplar cultivars for the wood industry.
Thanks to the Institute of Poplar Cultivation (CRA), to private tree nurseries and to the wood industry, the Italian poplar is well known and appreciated all over the world.
Sicem Saga utilizes debarked poplar wood rejects, coming from saw mills and plywood mills in northern Italy. For many years Sicem Saga has provided a vast organization of two hundred large chests in order to recycle used pallets and wood packaging boxes from mills, supermarkets and fruit markets. These rejects are called post consumer wood.
The purchasing department also buys virgin poplar trees from plantations that are cut, debarked and occasionally sold to other businesses.
All virgin wood suppliers must certify their origin of the wood and guarantee compliance with national forestry laws and procedures. Sicem's wood suppliers are committed to the requirements for our FSC certifications.
Wood sources and pulp outputs can be received by truck, railway (Canossa train station) or shipped through the La Spezia Harbor.
Our annual wood consumption is roughly 350.000 cubic meters and our production amounts to 150,000 T/A.
Sicem Saga Board of Directors is deeply committed to avoid purchasing and trading wood or wood fibres from the following sources:
- Wood harvested in violation of traditional and civil rights;
- Wood harvested in forests where high conservation values are threatened by management activities;
- Wood from forests in which genetically modified trees are planted; and
- Wood harvested in violation of any Law or Convention.
Sicem Saga will also refuse to trade wood and wood fibres of any other illegal or uncontrolled origin.
