Timber and Timber Products
We recognise that a great number of our customers for timber and timber products need evidence that the timber is from a well-managed source. That’s why we have been working with both FSC® and PEFC since 2003 and retain the largest network of sites in the UK that operate with Chain of Custody controls that allow evidence to be passed on.

Many of the cement and clay based products that we sell can be specified so that they come from supply chains with BES6001 the responsible sourcing standard for construction products. A register of suppliers and product types is kept by the BRE on the Green Book Live site.
Product and Service Innovation
Sustainable Building Solutions (SBS), a business we started in 2010, continued its development in 2012, with the launch of a suite of new build and retrofit construction plans, providing the construction industry with easy to follow guidelines to meet the changing requirements of building regulations and the Code for Sustainable Homes. The SBS website now has over 400 pages of information on sustainable building, covering, products, specifications and practical advice. SBS won the Retro Expo Outstanding Achievement of the Year for its integrated solutions and pioneering activity in support of a more sustainable built environment. In 2013 SBS will be heavily involved in delivering the Green Deal and ECO home improvement measures, and continuing to bring innovative products and services to the UK construction market.
