Environmental Policy

Through various bodies it is the intention/objective of the company to be fully involved in the pursuit of legal, fully managed and sustainable forest resources.

This ethos is reinforced through, amongst other things, our purchasing policy. The company has made a substantial commitment to waste management, recycling and our carbon footprint. All PVC and waste paper/card is bailed on site and recycled, whilst scrap timber and chippings are fed into a burner to heat the factory premises, providing a carbon neutral fuel source.

We, as a business, are committed to supporting certifiable products were chain of custody from forest to consumer can be correctly verified. This may be through a number of forest initiatives recognised within the timber trade. Where possible, preference will be given to supply from legal, sustainable and certified schemes. As a timber product manufacturer we will also comply with the new European Union Timber Regulations (EUTR) on supply and import of timber which is placed on the open market.
