Chain of custody & sustainable timber
We are an environmentally active and responsible organisation and are amongst the first in the timber frame industry to be awarded the essential chain of custody accreditation.
We’re committed to environmental solutions. You can be confident when you request Chain of Custody for a particular product, the materials used and the required documentation will be available. Everything is from sustainable, renewable sources. Our raw materials, both timber and wood based, are certified to FSC and PEFC Chain of Custody standards. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that the timber based raw materials used in our products come from legal, managed and sustainable sources.
Our principal suppliers of timber, engineered wood products and wood based panels are registered under the internationally recognised PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes) and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) chain of custody schemes. These schemes are regulated by independent third parties to ensure that the raw materials are managed throughout the process; from the forest, through milling /manufacturing, to exporting and merchandising.
We meet the most challenging criteria. We were the first timber frame manufacturer in the UK to have an Environmental Management System (EMS) registered under the ISO 14001 Standard. In our factories, we recycle 98% of timber waste, operate a low energy manufacturing process and recycle 85% of non timber waste.
