Environmentally Friendly Project Solutions

In the retail industry we are all too aware of the devastating effect that unsustainable and irresponsible forestry can have on our planet’s precious resources.

Retailers can only begin to lessen their impact on the environment if suppliers are dedicated to doing the same, and ensuring that you source wood products from well managed, sustainable forests can go some way towards this goal.

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC) standards ensure that Geaves only source products from sustainable resources.

The FSC sets standards for forest management and promotes, environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s forests.

Through the endorsement of national certification systems, PEFC motivates and enables people to sustainably manage their forests and works to provide a market for the products of those forests.

Geaves Surface Solutions has obtained both FSC and PEFC chain of custody certificate.

Surface solutions that are more environmentally friendly than traditional wooden surfaces include:Melamine Faced Panels and ComponentsMelamine faced particle board (chipboard and MDF) is more environmentally friendly than imported hardwood as it is manufactured from wood residues and thinnings from sustainable sources.

Production is also continually monitored and adapted to minimise negative environmental effects, e.g. emissions and waste generation.
