We support international efforts to improve forest management, such as the development of credible timber certification schemes. We recognise that the independent certification of forests and the process chain is the most useful tool for providing assurances that timber comes from legal and well-managed forests.
We will only use labels or accept certificates that include environmental or sustainability claims, if they are supported by publicly available standards drawn up in a fully participatory, transparent, and objective manner – backed by independent inspection.
We are Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Chain of Custody certified under certificate TT-COC-002162 to supply wood-based products originating from responsibly managed forests.
We are also Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC) Chain of Custody certified under certificate BMT-PEFC-0236 to supply wood-based products sourced from sustainably managed forests. Our BM TRADA Forest Products certification under certificate BMT-COC-0140 covers a wide range of other Forest Certification Schemes and Verification Programmes.
