We have recently appointed an internal Environmental Action Group to drive our sustainability goals and pledge for a greener future. Amid a turbulent year for the timber trade, Richard Burbidge has appointed an Environmental Action Group to drive our sustainability agenda with the aim to reduce carbon emissions. The impact of climate change combined with the pandemic and Brexit has had a huge impact on the timber industry, with shortages widely publicised and both builders and consumers struggling to get their hands on supplies. Thanks to our long-standing partnerships with domestic and international timber suppliers, we are proud to have been able to maintain a constant supply of certified material into the UK market during these challenging times. Our appointment of the Environment Action Group demonstrates our ongoing commitment to environmental best practice and environmental responsibility. The group is ISO 14001:2015 accredited which confirms its environmental management systems are complaint with the standard’s rigorous requirements. The Environmental Action Group is working towards the ultimate goal of reducing carbon emissions and is currently reviewing its environmental impact. From this, the group will ascertain a baseline and develop a carbon footprint management plan which sets clear measurable objectives, targets, and timescales to becoming net zero. We believe that all of the small changes we make at Richard Burbidge can have a big impact globally. We pledge to make our contribution to a more sustainable future. The appointment comes as we launch our ‘Sustainability Month’ this September with a range of meaningful eco initiatives, including the launch of a partnership with COAT Paints. Designed using a water-based, low-toxin and solvent free formula, COAT Paints are also animal cruelty free and vegan, as well as being carbon neutral. Sustainability Month is an important initiative for us to help drive awareness of our brand as well as the importance of a sustainable timber trade to preserve the environment.
