Protecting the Environment for Future Generations
Mercia prides themselves on their commitments in place for protection of the environment and has achieved Forest Stewardship Council® Chain of Custody certification.
All of the timber we use in our products is sourced from forests that are certified in accordance with strict rules to ensure that it is sourced from well managed, economically viable, environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, responsible forest management worldwide.
Timber products are sourced from FSC Chain of Custody certified suppliers that are independently audited to ensure that materials purchased are traced back to well managed forests in accordance to the rules of The Forest Stewardship Council and to help give assurances that the materials were harvested legally in the country of origin.
Mercia has also achieved The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest (PEFC) certification.
The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) is an international non-profit, non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) through independent third-party certification.
PEFC works throughout the entire forest supply chain to promote good practice in the forest and to ensure that timber is produced with respect for the highest ecological, social and ethical standards.
