Caring for the environment and each other

Davison Highley, caring for the environment and each other.

As a Furniture manufacturer it should be no surprise that we use a lot of timber…… a lot of timber!

But have you ever considered where that timber is sourced?

Well we take that sort of thing very seriously, so alongside our existing ISO-14001 certification, Davison Highley is very pleased to announce that we are now also FSC™ certified.

 

What does that mean?

The Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC) is an international non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting responsible forestry. FSC™ certifies forests all over the world to ensure they meet the highest environmental and social standards for responsible forest management.

Davison Highley sources our timber from products made using trees harvested from FSC™ certified sites and as such our customers can be confident that buying our furniture won’t mean harming the world’s forests. What’s more, our certification to FSC™ further affirms our strong commitment to promoting and supporting sustainability across our supply chains.

 

Chain of Custody

In addition to knowing our furniture is made from timber grown from a sustainable source, we can now offer full Chain of Custody (CoC) if your project requires it.

This means that each piece of timber used in the manufacture of our furniture can be traced back to the forest which produced it. This is verified at each stage in the supply chain, giving you full assurance that our products originate from genuine FSC™ certified sources. This is essential if your project is looking to achieve a particular environmental standard, such as BREEAM or LEED.

 

What do you need to do?

Davison Highley purchases all our timber from FSC™ certified sources, so you can be confident that our furniture is already FSC™ compliant.

However if you require full Chain of Custody (CoC) for your project, you need to let us know at ordering stage so we can produce a CoC schedule. This will provide full traceability and verification on all the FSC™ materials used in the furniture manufactured for you. We can’t unfortunately produce this retrospectively so it is important that we know from the start of the project prior to us ordering any materials.

Talk to us about how your project can be enhanced by using Davison Highley as an FSC™ certified furniture manufacturer.
