Environmental issues are important and Davison Highley take their responsibility as designers and manufacturers very seriously. We are committed as a business to working to prevent pollution and ensure the protection of the environment, our employees and neighbours in everything we do.


Our products are designed with reducing environmental impact in mind. By using sustainable materials, reducing the amount of waste created during manufacture and through our renowned quality and longevity, which reduces the need to replace components or entire pieces of furniture through wear.


We also work closely with our suppliers to ensure our designs are manufactured with environmentally ethical materials, components and practises. We always strive to divert our waste away from landfill, preferring instead to reuse, recycle, or redistribute unwanted or unrequired manufacture materials and furniture internally or to good causes and charities. Where this is not possible we always ensure that all waste taken off site will be consigned to registered waste carriers for treatment / disposal at appropriate sites.


Our environmental policy is publicly available to download from our website and is regularly reviewed to ensure we are continually improving and reducing our environmental impact.

Timber sustainability




As Furniture a 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 ISO-14001 certification, Davison Highley is 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.
