Environmental

We know that over 90% of our environmental impact lies within the supply chain

At Lambson Building Products and Laminated Products we take our environmental responsibility very seriously. We know a commitment to energy efficiency and a sustainable supply chain is key to reducing our carbon footprint and helping to maintain the environment for future generations.

Being one of the leading suppliers of timber products in the UK brings with it a great responsibility towards the environment. We are continually trying to improve the sustainability of our business, be that by investing in improved technology, energy efficiency and recycling throughout our manufacturing process or by sourcing environmentally safe and renewable materials in our supply chain.

EU Timber Regulation (EUTR)

The European Timber Regulation(EUTR) No.995/210 came into force on March 3rd 2013. The regulations were implemented to restrict the flow of illegally sourced timber into the European marketplace. Illegal logging has severe economic, environmental and social impacts around the world and as a respected and environmentally aware company, Lambson Building Products and Laminated Products take our responsibilities in this area extremely seriously.

In accordance with EUTR, as an ‘operator’ we have implemented a rigorous due diligence system, including the gathering of onsite evidence at the mill and concession, risk assessments of the local area and risk mitigation. We are fully committed to making every effort possible to ensure we only procure timber products from legal and sustainable sources.

Our focus on environmental responsibility has seen us reduce our environmental impact and it also means we’ve saved money for our business, our suppliers and our customers.
