Responsible Sourcing Policy

 

As forests around the world come under increasing pressure, it has never been more urgent to ensure that the timber-based products that we source support environmentally sound and socially beneficial practices – a promise that we will pass on to our customers.

Guiding us in our day-to-day purchasing, we operate a Responsible sourcing policy that is informed by the latest regulatory technological and market developments appropriate to our business. We take a systematic approach to ensure the legal origin of the timber in our products to comply with the EU Timber Regulation and Construction Products Regulation.

However, we must look beyond legality as the laws in many countries do not necessarily equate to sustainability. That is why we source from companies that manage their forests responsibly and are able to demonstrate this through independent certification according to internationally recognised standards. Where this is not possible we work with our suppliers to transition towards more responsible practices.
