Reducing our Delivery Carbon Footprint
We measure and report our carbon dioxide emissions. We’ve invested in route planning software. We track our vehicles, monitor their speed and challenge out-of-zone deliveries. We have a roadmap full of activity that will see us almost halve our carbon intensity by 2018.
Supply Certified Timber Requirements
We are committed to continuously increasing the percentage of the raw material content of our timber products that is certified to one of the internationally recognised standards and, to this end, we regularly challenge our timber suppliers to improve their own performance.
All of our timber is EUTR compliant and we believe we are presently the only multiple general merchant to be able to offer FSCⓇ and PEFCTM certified products from all of our branches. We have a wide range of certified products available, including MDF, OSB, chipboard, carcasing, softwood and hardwood, plywood and a range of solid hardwoods.
The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is an international network designed to promote responsible management of the world's forests.
Look for FSC® certified products.
The Programme for the Endorsement of the Forest Certification (PEFC™) is a framework for the recognition of the forest certification schemes meeting internationally recognised requirements for sustainable forest management.
Travis Perkins is commited to operating efficiency and supplying sustainable building and hire products to our customers.
