Wiltshire Joinery Ltd recognise the importance of environmental considerations in relation to all of its timber supplies. As a responsible organisation, Wiltshire Joinery seeks to follow, in all areas of its activities, policies which support this.
It is considered that with best practices observed, timber and wood products are the ultimate sustainable and recyclable materials, requiring low energy consumption to process and are thermally efficient in use.
Forests Forever is a campaign by Britain’s timber industry to help safeguard the forests of the world by encouraging improved forest management, responsible trading and the promotion of the positive environmental aspects of using timber, and Wiltshire Joinery support this wholeheartedly.
Our suppliers actively seek evidence of commitment to continuous improvement in environmental performance, information on the source of wood products and evidence of good forest management practice. This allows us to guarantee that we will only source materials from suppliers who are operating within the laws of their own country. With the growing public awareness of the environment and environmental issues, and with many customers specifically requesting certified timber, we feel it is essential to maintain awareness of all local and world issues and we continue to support those suppliers who make positive moves towards stocking products originating from sustainable and correctly managed forests, and in particular FSC certified products. (FSC products have their forest of origin independently inspected and evaluated according to environmental, social and economic criteria agreed by the Forest Stewardship Council AC.)
FSC (the Forest Stewardship Council) is an international, non-profit making association whose membership includes environmental and social groups and progressive forestry and wood retail companies working in partnership to improve forest management world wide.
