Environmental Purchasing Commitment

Sydenhams have been keen to promote their timber environmental commitment for many years, buying materials from recognised agents and mills who ensure the safe management of their forests, and a programme of re-forestation.

At Sydenhams, we source an ever increasing % of our timber and timber based products from suppliers who demonstrate their commitment by running a Chain of Custody (C.O.C.) system. This is either run by F.S.C. (Forest Stewardship Council®) or P.E.F.C. (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification), which promote sustainable and well managed forests, traceability of the product, while prohibiting the conversion of forests into other habitats.

To this end we have gained certification Chain of Custody at our Bristol (Avon Plywood), Glastonbury, Swindon (A Grade Timber) and Wickham branches and below are our certificates.

We also have CE marking for our visual stress graders / several softwood machined products / truss rafters / easy joists.
