New Year, New Timber! In 2019 Snows Timber vows to continue working towards a more sustainable environment and build on (and improve) its existing sustainable business practice.
“Ready to be enjoyed by colleagues and customers.”
Snows already has certification on 99% of its timber products which not only is great for the environment but also makes sense for business. Wood that is sourced sustainably lays the foundation for a thriving timber industry for many years to come.
Additionally, Snows offers its customers access to the Chain of Custody, a mechanism used for tracking timber-based products from the forest to the end user. Thus, offering all customers peace of mind regarding the sustainable and legal sourcing of the materials.
All Snows’ products are certified from either the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) or the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).
Timber is a natural product and to reach the standards needed for construction, it must go through the full growing process to improve strength and reach optimal quality. Chain of Custody is vital to the timber and construction industries to ensure forests are responsibly managed to produce high-quality timber and to guarantee its supply in the long term – as well as protecting our planet’s future.
