We recognise that we have a responsibility to minimise our environmental impact, and believe that we must balance meeting our business needs with this responsibility to the planet.
Due to this, we take great care when choosing products, to ensure their traceability and integrity. Where possible, our timber products are sourced from well-managed forests that are governed by strict environmental certified programmes. As well where possible, we ensure our building materials are also sourced from environment and moral friendly suppliers.
We have been endorsed for the Forest Certification (PEFC) Chain of Custody Scheme, and the Forest Stewardship Council® FSC® Chain of Custody Scheme.
