James Burrell Builders Merchants have announced that they have secured Chain of Custody certification FSC & PEFC for their newest branch that has opened in Rotherham. This means that all 10 of the companies branches across the North East and Yorkshire regions, have now achieved the accreditation.
As all branches have received Chain of Custody certification this means customers can buy certified timber materials from any James Burrell branch and know that it has been sustainably sourced, this highlights the company’s commitment to sourcing products which have not been harvested unethically or illegally.
Andy Lees, the companies Timber Manager, said, ‘At James Burrell we are continuously striving towards ensuring that all business operations are as environmentally friendly as possible. It is important to us that our customers can have peace of mind when purchasing timber products from us, to know that our materials are promoting the sustainable management of forests and that the final product can be traced back to a sustainable source’.
James Burrell Builders Merchants take environmental responsibilities extremely seriously as shown from their recent achievement of bronze accreditation in the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) which aims to raise the level of quality, safety and environmental protection within fleet operations. The majority of the James Burrell fleet are now at the maximum Euro 6 rating with 8 at the next best Euro 5 rating. By the end of this year it is anticipated that all of the James Burrell vehicles will meet Euro 6 standard.
