Supplying high-quality doors to you is our top priority, but it’s also important to us that our products come from sustainable materials and are made in a way that is environmentally responsible.
Choosing sustainable kitchen doors
All the timber-based raw materials used to produce our doors come from well-managed and sustainable sources, and most of our product ranges come from suppliers who are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC). FSC and PEFC certification both means that when you order your new doors, you can be sure you’re making an ethical, environmentally conscious choice. These are the ranges to look for on our site:
Why are PEFC and FSC certification important?
The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) is a global alliance of national forest certification systems, which works to promote sustainable forest management.
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an organisation that promotes “environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world’s forests”. The FSC offers certification to businesses and manufacturers to show that their products are made from sustainably-sourced, well-managed materials.
The FSC works to ensure that harvested trees are replaced or allowed to regenerate naturally, and also keeps parts of forests protected completely, for both indigenous people and wildlife. The FSC is also endorsed by the major environmental charities such as the WWF and Greenpeace.
Buying from and PEFC and FSC-certified businesses gives you peace of mind that your items have been ethically sourced and that responsible working practices are in place.
