We are open for business as usual (although there here is nothing usual about this situation) with our transport company (Brooks Transport) who are designated by the government as critical to the covid response. We are still delivering direct to door or site, (however collections or visits to the warehouse are not possible.) Our IT systems allow us to work from home so our staff are protected. Please Call or Email Us for samples or orders. Our factories are back to full capacity and the supply chain is operating effectively which can be seen here. As a trade supplier we have a minimum requirement of 50m2 for any samples and supplies. Please call 01666 504015 if you require less. For Government advice please click here. Even with these steps we have made, we must pull together, support one another, and get through this as a group, a family, and feel proud to say to our wider community we are critical to the Covid-19 response, and we will support it for as long as we are able. Stay safe, stay well, look after yourself, and each other.

WWF Award 3 Trees to The Solid Wood Flooring Company

Posted in Environment By Solidwood Company

The report offers an insight into how each of the 122 companies reviewed scored with regards to setting and performing against commitments around responsible timber and wood product sourcing. WWF believes that transparent supply chains are an integral feature of a responsible company, and we have therefore awarded points to companies for not just procuring a high proportion of products from sustainable sources, but also for making information regarding their sourcing practices publicly available.

 

Each year the report serves to highlight the companies that are engaging with the fight against deforestation but also reveals key learnings that can benefit the cause in the long run. It shows how the public sector is doing as a whole and encourages those who need to make improvements to do so.

That is why we are so pleased to be able to announce that we have been awarded 3 trees by WWF.

In the last of a three-part series, we have once again achieved a rating of 3 trees which according to the WWF means that we are ‘performing well against procurement policies’.

When they completed this report in both 2015 and 2017 we also consistently achieved 3 trees. The environment and responsible sourcing of our timber product has always been high on our agenda, and it is great to see that reflected in our score in the report.

We are leading in our industry in this report, as we were the only timber flooring supply company to achieve a score of 3 trees across all three reports.  So, you know that with us you can rest assured that you are supporting a business that has the environment at its heart.  

We share this sentiment with the WWF:

We hope you will join us in sharing these results and raising awareness of continued global deforestation.
