Our environmental responsibility
Lawcris are fully committed to the prevention of pollution, and to continual reduction in environmental impact caused by the company’s activities. We are careful to meet environmental legislation and ensure regulations are complied with. By recognizing the importance of educating and training our employees, Lawcris makes continuous improvements to its products and processes.
Lawcris holds both FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) and PEFC™ (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes) certification and aims to continue to promote the use of materials that are certified with these marks. The company is consistently assessing suppliers’ ability to ensure their products are manufactured from timbers that are sourced from certified locations.
Most of our waste material is disposed of in one of our two shredder/burners, which eliminates landfill and in addition, heats two of our buildings reducing Lawcris’ use of fossil fuels.
The company’s logistics department coordinates deliveries to ensure the routes taken are the shortest to reduce pollution and fuel usage.
Lawcris firmly believe the being environmentally aware is an important factor of business success.
FSC is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests.
Established in 1993 as a response to concerns over global deforestation, FSC is a pioneer forum where the global consensus on responsible forest management convenes and through democratic process effects solutions to the pressures facing the world’s forests and forest-dependent communities.
FSC certification provides a credible link between responsible production and consumption of forest products, enabling consumers and businesses to make purchasing decisions that benefit people and the environment as well as providing ongoing business value.
FSC is nationally represented in more than 50 countries around the world.
PEFC UK Ltd was established in 2000 and is the member of PEFC International, an international non-profit, nongovernmental organisation dedicated to promoting Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) through independent third-party certification. PEFC International is an umbrella organisation that endorses national forest certification systems developed through multi-stakeholder processes and tailored to local priorities and conditions.
PEFC works throughout the entire forest supply chain to promote good practice in the forest and to ensure that timber and non-timber forest products are produced with respect for the highest ecological, social and ethical standards. Thanks to its eco-label, customers and consumers are able to identify products from sustainably managed forests.
