Supplying high-quality doors to you is our top priority, but it’s also important to us 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 doors from our Bella, Zurfiz, Trends and Visions ranges come from well-managed and sustainable sources. In addition, the majority 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 mean when you order your new replacement kitchen or bedroom 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) organisation promotes “environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world's forests”. It also offers certification to businesses and manufacturers to show their products are made from sustainably-sourced, well-managed materials.
By working to ensure that harvested trees are replaced or allowed to regenerate naturally, the FSC also keeps parts of forests protected completely - this is important for both indigenous people and for wildlife. In addition, the FSC is endorsed by major environmental charities including WWF and Greenpeace.
Buying from and PEFC and FSC-certified businesses gives you the peace of mind that your replacement doors, drawer fronts and door accessories have been ethically sourced and that responsible working practices are in place.
