As part of our commitment to the WWF’s Forest campaign, we have agreed to make our responsible purchasing performance public. In 2014, 77.39% of our products came from FSC® & PEFC Certified sources. Following receipt of these figures, we set a target to reach 80% 3rd party certified products for 2015.
In 2015, we have surpassed this target and sourced 82.6% of our timber from FSC & PEFC Certified. As a result of the improvement in our sourcing and the performance and commitment of our Purchasing Department, we have set a target of 87% for 2016.
As one of the largest importers of timber in Europe, the UK plays an important role in influencing the markets. Ensuring the sustainability of forests ultimately ensures the sustainability of the industry. To this end, Hanson Plywood are proud to support the WWF’s Forest Campaign. We strongly encourage others to support this campaign and the WWF’s objective.
