In order to demonstrate our commitment to maintaining timber’s position as material of first choice in our sector, CP Timber has a written environmental purchasing policy as follows:
CP Timber has certified Chain of Custody to trade products under the following schemes:
1. FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®)
2. PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification)
If you need a copy of our chain of custody certificates you can click on the links below to download them.
Wherever possible, suppliers offering products covered under these recognised schemes will be given preference.
As well as standard FSC® and PEFC, CP Timber also recognise the following schemes SGS, TLTV, VLC from Rainforest Alliance and Bureau Veritas OLB. For more information please contact us.
All suppliers are requested to provide evidence relating to the legality of their supply and we risk rate these as part of our due diligence under the Timber Trade Federation’s Responsible Purchasing Policy (RPP).
We have successfully passed our annual audit for the RPP and of course we comply in full with the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR).
Our aim is firstly to avoid the risk of any illegal timber in our supply chain and our suppliers must show evidence of activity of their own to achieve the same aim. In achieving this aim, we expect that we will also increase the amount of timber that we trade that can also be considered sustainable.
CP Timber aims to provide its customers with the assurance that our products are able to meet both their legal, environmental and technical requirements.
This long term approach will help us to play our part in keeping timber as the most sustainable material available for use in our sector.
