We care deeply about our environment, especially where our timber comes from. We know that today illegal logging still continues throughout the world contributing to the deforestation of some of our most treasured forests and woodlands.

With this in mind, here at British Hardwoods we have always been strict in sourcing our timber only from accredited suppliers, sawmills or timber merchants that are either certified by PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) or FSC (Forest Stewardship Council).

As well as being mindful of our timber supply, we also recycle all our timber waste and are totally self-sufficient with the Talbotts C4 Boiler producing green heat and by utilising 10 tonnes of wood shavings per week, we achieve a zero net gain in CO2 with no fossil fuels burnt whatsoever.

We also have facilities to produce biodiesel from waste vegetable oil which we use to run our Scania eco-generator making us completely self-sufficient for heat and power.
