For our European species, we only source from wood that is milled sustainably and carries FSC certification
For our American species, we only source from wood that is milled at one of the largest national plants and carries PEFC certification.
For our exotic African species, we only source from wood that is purchased legally. These manufacturing plants are subject to strict monitoring and our supply partners continually seek proof that the necessary sustainability procedures are being implemented.
All the timber supplied by us — from any source — is logged from sustainable forests with well-established replanting programmes.
The very construction of our worktops (solid timber panels — or staves — which are finger jointed) means that waste is extremely minimal. Any resultant wood waste is used to create samples and by-products; or, in the final instance, unusable solid wood offcuts are used to fuel a newly instated biomass boiler, which heats a warehouse.
