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 and our innovative products provide our clients with a more sustainable, energy efficient way of building, safe in the knowledge of having a fully certified and approved system.
Our products are from sustainable, renewable sources, and we are fully compliant with 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.
This scheme is 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. Our clients can be confident that when they request Chain of Custody for a particular product, that the materials used and the required documentation will be made available.
We meet the most challenging criteria under these schemes. We are proud to say that 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.
Our products are also compliant with building regulations and NHBC technical standards, recognised by insurers and lenders, and we also comply with all UK legal requirements and obligations, including those of the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) No 995/2010.
