Chain of Custody Certification

Chain of Custody Certification is very busy this week, with Auditors visiting Hinckley, Swanscombe and Norfolk.

Last week saw requests for quotes from Architectural Companies in Bath and Birmingham, also a Commercial Printing Company in Colchester.

These companies want to display responsible procurement with an independent Certification System. This in turn shows to their clients that they can meet specific requirements.

There is a fact sheet containing more information on this, on the FSC website which can be found here.

PEFC/FSC Certification and Art World Conservation

We are recognising Art World Conservation which takes place from the 4th to the 25th of August. It is a 3-week charity event which will be held at the Royal Horticultural Society Halls in London. This event is to raise awareness about Wildlife, Conservation and Climate Change.

More information on this event can be found at http://artworldconservation.com/

What Can We Do To Help?

As a business, you can become PEFC/FSC Certified, to display that you have a responsible approach to purchasing wood or fibre-based products, which in turn will benefit the environment.

PEFC Chain of Custody

PEFC tracks wood and timber products through the entire supply chain, from source to end-user. PEFC holds high ethical and environmental Standards for all the forests they certify, ensuring the lives of people and animals living in these areas are protected and considered when conducting any activity.

The PEFC mark on your products will show to your customers that you hold ethics and responsible sourcing to the highest standard, and in a market that is becoming increasingly demanding of responsibly sourced timber, what better way to get that competitive edge against others in the industry?

We have been certifying against PEFC Chain of Custody in the West Midlands and Wales this month, so why not join them? To learn more about our PEFC auditing call us on 01952 288325, initiate a live chat or fill out our online enquiry form.

Sustainability & PEFC

When sourcing wood, the PEFC mark has far reaching implications when it comes to sustainability and biodiversity.

PEFC-certified forests are managed to maintain, conserve and enhance the biodiversity of the forest. This is enforced by making sure that indigenous species are favoured in reforestation and afforestation. The scheme also ensures that chemicals, pesticides and herbicides are substituted for a natural alternative.

Alongside this, the organisation works alongside the native people and communities who rely on the forests, to ensure they maintain their quality of life, by not only minimising any disturbances, but by also protecting water sources and the soil from erosion.

Consumers are becoming proactive in buying sustainable goods, they want to know where their products have come from and the ethics behind the supply chain. PEFC is a great way to show your customers that you’ve considered sustainability, biodiversity and native communities.
