AST’s Sustainability Story

At Australian Select Timbers, we ensure our products are sustainably sourced and eco-friendly. With years of experience in the flooring industry, we are continuously evolving our business to meet industry standards and expectations on minimising our carbon footprint and increasing our eco-awareness.

Engineered Timber Flooring

Engineered timber flooring is becoming increasingly popular as a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to traditional hardwood floors and other flooring materials

Manufacturing Process

The process for manufacturing our timber boards uses multiple thin layers of timber, constructed with a cross-grained sub-base and a sliced timber veneer on the surface. This process ensures there is enhanced structural integrity for the board and uses less materials to manufacture compared to solid timber flooring.

Sustainable Resource

Sustainability is an important element we consider when sourcing our timber flooring. One industry body that assists in regulating standards for the timber industry is the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), they set the standards for responsible forestry worldwide. FSC are a global leader in forest management and operate one of the most trusted forest certification systems. Whenever you see FSC certification, you will know that the timber has been sourced from a sustainably managed forest.

Renewable Energy

In an effort to reduce gas emission and air pollution, all of our factories and distribution centres are using renewable generated power such as solar, to produce and store products.

Less Waste

Engineered timber flooring has become a more environmentally friendly option because of the way it is produced. The layers of wood veneer and high-density fibreboard are made to exact specifications, resulting in less waste during the manufacturing process. As timber flooring is more durable than other flooring options they can last a lifetime, therefore also resulting in less waste from not having to replace floorboards as often.

Australian Select Timbers are committed to finding more efficient ways to improve our processes and workplace practices with a better understanding on the impact we have on the environment.


We strive to provide our customers with flooring that is not only beautiful and long-lasting but sustainably sourced and environmentally friendly as well.
