It is with great pride that we finally can reveal the new Wild Fur protocol, which Baltic Academy has developed on behalf of the International Fur Federation (IFF) and their sustainability program Furmark®. The Wild Fur Protocol makes it possible for companies* trading wild fur harvested from North America to be certified and thus obtain prove that their Wild Fur products meet the high standards of Furmark® in terms of animal welfare, sustainability and traceability.
*only IFF approved companies are able to become Wild Fur audited and certified.
Jøren Ivar Brus Mikkelsen runs his herd of Forest Cattle from the National Park Mols Bjerge. Since 2014, he has been certified by Baltic Control® Certification and has an annual inspection to ensure that the herd meets the certification and the quality requirements that accompany it.
Baltic Control® Certification specializes in sustainability certification of companies in the energy sector.The prerequisite for such a sustainability certificate is that a company is subject to a legal requirement for documentation that affects all parts of the value chain. For example, you must document that your production does not harm or damage natural areas.
”Since January 2009, Baltic Control® Certification has had the task of controlling the Danish pig herds. They are very serious and professional” says Asger Kjær Nielsen, Quality Manager for DANISH Product Standard at SEGES Knowledge Center for Pig Production
