Our Green Credentials
We are the first independent builders' merchant in Northamptonshire to achieve FSC certification, which is our guarantee that our timber products are from responsibly managed and renewable forests which is good for us, our customers and the environment.
We’ve gone green with our timber after we were recently awarded the highly prestigious FSC® (FSC® C014214) Chain of Custody certification.
Timber from well-managed sources is being demanded, not only by the ‘green’ consumer lobby but increasingly by local authorities, government departments and major national building companies. We believe that the choice of materials for major construction projects is now being influenced by environmental concerns. As a renewable material, sustainable production of timber has to be proved and the demonstrable proof lies in third-party certification. That’s why we went through a very rigorous and time-consuming assessment over nine months to gain the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) chain of custody certification”.
