In keeping with our commitment to being a responsible manufacturer we strongly support international efforts to improve forest management, we will therefore not trade in timber species prohibited under appendix 1 of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) legislation.
ALL of the timber we purchase will be sourced from responsible suppliers who are carefully selected, certified and third party assessed.
