Wood (Sourcing and disposal of Bi Products)
All timber and timber-derived products are purchased from approved suppliers, these suppliers have demonstrated responsible and sustainable sourcing procedures, and the vast majority of our timber is certified.
Native forests not only yield beautiful timbers but are essential to the future of our planet, providing us with clean water through natural filtration and clean air by removing pollution and producing oxygen. Timber is harvested from the same native forests over and over again. These forests continue to provide us with timber because no more timber is cut than the forest can re-grow. We must value these facts and appreciate the biodiversity contained in these habitats
We at Flightwise Joinery are proud to be able to boast a near-zero waste footprint. All of our surplus / off-cuts of wood are recycled in the following ways:
- Clean wood waste is recycled for animal bedding.
- Our hardwood and unsalable shavings and dust are all burned to provide heating for our factory thus lowering the impact on the environment by using green fuels.
- Our general wood waste is recycled for conversion into kindling and or domestic firewood.
We have a policy to reuse and recycle all paper where possible. Our waste paper is recycled, only paper that contains personal or sensitive information is burnt, this helps to heat our factory. We request, wherever possible, that all of our goods received have minimum packaging, to reduce waste whilst still leaving the product protected. Similarly, the packaging on our deliveries is minimal.
Despite our factories and offices having energy-saving bulbs, lights and electrical equipment are always switched off when not in use. We use energy-efficient appliances wherever possible and the consumption and efficiency of new products will always be taken into account at the time of purchase.
All of our deliveries are assessed, and the means of delivery selected is dependent upon the load, thus reducing our carbon footprint further.
Our managing director is responsible for ensuring that the environmental policy is implemented. However, all employees have a responsibility in their area to ensure that the aims and objectives of the policy are met.
You are a great little company and similar organisations could learn a big lesson from the way you do things.
It was such a pleasure dealing with your company
I asked if it could be delivered in a couple of weeks and immediately I was given a date which was adhered to (a rarity these days)
The stairs obviously fitted perfectly and exceeded our expectations with regards to quality and finish especially considering they were so reasonably priced.
Thank you so much for what can only be described as a first class service from start to finish.
