At Arnold Laver we are committed to protecting the environment. Our policy is to continually improve our environmental performance, preventing pollution and minimising the impact of our operations.
PEFC and FSC® Certification
We also strive to meet and where possible exceed the applicable environmental legislation. We strongly believe that it is our corporate and social responsibility to help preserve the world forests and promote effective forestry management.
We offer a range of PEFC and FSC® Certified timber products and are able to consistently provide goods from legal and sustainable sources.
All Arnold Laver branches have Chain of Custody implemented, independently evaluated and certified to provide our customers with environmental assurances.
Our certified timber products meet the UK Government CPET approved timber procurement policy – through the following certification schemes:
Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification – The worlds largest resource, it assesses and endorses national forest certification schemes against a set of internationally agreed criteria for sustainable forest management.
Forest Stewardship Council® – An international forest certification scheme recognised as proof of legal and sustainable product origin. The FSC does this by setting standards on forest products, along with certifying and labeling them as eco-friendly.
