MINIMISING OUR IMPACT
We manage our operations in accordance with
the international BS EN ISO 14001:2004 and
BS EN ISO 50001:2018 standards. Plus, we are
constantly seeking new ways to improve our
sustainability performance, through energy
efficiency measures, avoiding pollution and
minimising or recycling our waste.

REUSABLE TIMBER
As a PEFC™ & FSC® (Forest Stewardship
Council® FSC®-C100100) certified company,
we use only softwood timber from responsibly
managed forests in our cabinets. We are also
actively developing products from responsible
sources and ensuring all timber waste is reused
or recycled.

REUSABLE ENERGY
All electricity used is provided from renewable
sources, and 2 of our production facilities are
heated through energy reclamation of our own
waste wood. Carbon dioxide emissions from
manufacturing and heating have been reduced
by 87% from 2016 to 2019.

FUEL-EFFICIENT FLEET
We recently introduced a new vehicle fleet
incorporating the fuel-efficient Euro VI engine.
We are also working towards more efficient
logistics, ensuring that lorries are fully loaded
for their return journey. Through these initiatives
we have already reduced overall transport
emissions by 8%.

SUSTAINABILITY
• 8% reduction in kg CO2 per cabinet
in the last 5 years from transport
• 87% reduction in kg CO2 per cabinet in the
last 5 years from heating/manufacturing
• Reduction of > 700t of carbon dioxide through
installation of LED lighting
• 100% renewable electricity in all production
facilities and stores
• Two manufacturing sites heated by waste
from energy boilers (incinerating waste wood)
• Rated as 3 trees in the 2019 Global Forest
Trade Network Timber Scorecard

WASTE MANAGEMENT
• Solid panel waste either incinerated to provide
heating, sold as a raw material to a third party
for reuse or recycled via a third-party
waste company
• We’re part of the WEEE scheme to dispose
of electrical and electronic equipment
