Before the floor, there was the tree. The Lauzon Group sets itself apart from other hardwood floor manufacturers with its fully integrated operations which begin by harvesting the forest with care and passion. Wood is a renewable resource and maintaining its continuous supply for now and the future, demands rigorous application of the best stewardship forestry practices.
We maintain and crop more than two million acres of private and public forests by applying strict norms for wildlife, water and forest well-being and protection, in accordance with Quebec’s Forestry Law.
This vertical integration contributes an advanced knowledge of wood and the product itself. It allows us to maximize quality and efficiency at each stage of the process while securing a supply of wood for at least 25 years.
As a testimony to the environment and the well-being of our forest, we have developed a zero-waste program by recycling all wood residues to produce wood pellets, the cleanest energy. Our commitment also extends to the finishes we apply on our floors which are eco-friendly and exempt of formaldehyde, VOCs and solvents.
Choosing a Dubeau floor, it’s choosing to help preserve our natural resources for future generations. As all our floors come from sustainably managed forest, are legally sourced and comply with the US Lacey Act.
We are ISO 14001 certified for environmental management practices, which include the way we measure our environmental impact and work constantly to improve our performance.
Dubeau products can be used to help earn LEED* credits for your building projects. The LEED® Green Building Rating System was developed to measure the environmental and energy performance of buildings. It is used to promote, build, operate and certify sustainable buildings and facilities. The LEED® Green Building Rating System takes into account construction objectives within the framework of sustainable development strategies.
