In an age where climate change and environmental credentials are important community values, Wellington Architectural is committed to using sustainably grown timber from certified suppliers to manufacture our products. Certification of forest practices can help consumers make environmentally responsible purchasing decisions. A certification system provides independent verification that environmental and sustainable forestry standards are being met. Certifiers monitor and audit practices on a continual basis to ensure performance and compliance.
Our goal is to be more transparent with our supply chain and manufacturing processes. We are in the process of setting up our systems to achieve Chain of Custody (CoC) certification. This system will ensure that an effective management system is in place with records to support claims relating to the source of wood products and a training system that ensures key staff have appropriate skills and competencies to implement and control the CoC system.
We believe that these environmental credentials are integral in securing our future and helping to protect our environment for future generations.
Wellington Architectural sources all of our timber from Timber Direct.
Timber Direct is certified to FSC® (Forestry Stewardship Council) Standards and PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification). As an ethical timber supplier, all their hardwood and softwood timbers are sourced from sustainable forests. The entire journey from logging to delivery is certificated to ensure that materials are part of a process that is fair and environmentally friendly.
