Environment Friendly

Responsible - Low Wastage - Sustainable

We obtain timber from responsibly managed sources and operate to strict environmental management standards.  We seek independent certification whenever possible.

Environmental Policy

Fountain Timber has always been an environmentally - minded organisation. The company supplies timber products that are renewable, low energy and low environmental impact alternatives to many other building products. We care about timber and take great pride in supplying high-quality products while minimising the impact our business has on the environment. 

The Board of Directors, management and staff at all levels of the organisation at Fountain Timber Products Ltd are committed to developing a business that is both environmentally aware and dedicated to minimising any negative environmental impacts. We constantly endeavour to find new uses for products previously considered waste. 

On a wider scale, we have a policy of actively promoting sustainable timber through legislative and policy reform which leads to the environmental services provided by forests being reflected in the price paid for timber products.

Our stated management goals

Comply with all legislative requirements as a minimum, but where practically possible exceed these requirements.

Prevent pollution

Be committed to a "continuous improvement program"

Introduce all necessary controls to ensure as far as practically possible, that the impact of Fountain Timber on air, water or land are minimised.

Undertake training programs so that all employees understand the impact of their activities.

Obtain timber from responsibly managed sources and seek independent certification whenever possible.

ISO 14001 standards

On arrival at Fountain Timber, the processing of that material is then subject to an environmental management system in accordance with strict ISO 14001 standards.

Fountain Timber Products and group companies have a record of sustained yield management in the UK. Following a Forest Stewardship Council® audit by an independent company of purchases and processes during 2022, we are pleased to have a further 5-year certification under certificate No CU-COC-807095 to confirm our commitment to purchasing and supplying timber from responsibly managed sources.

FSC® Supplier

We are proud to support The FSC® in promoting responsible management of the world’s forests. The organisation was founded in 1993 in response to public concern about deforestation and demand for a trustworthy wood-labelling scheme. There are national working groups in more than 50 countries. FSC UK is a registered charity.

Benefits of buying from FSC® certified suppliers:

FSC® certified forests are managed with consideration for people, wildlife and the environment.

The FSC® label guarantees that the trees that are harvested are replaced or allowed to regenerate naturally.

Parts of the forest are protected entirely, in order to protect rare animals and plants.

All the wood is tracked from the forest to the store, with a chain of custody.

Every link between the forest and the consumer is certified to make it clearly identifiable which wood is FSC® certified and which is not. 

FSC® certified products are available on request.

ready to Burn Fuel Certification Scheme

The scheme makes it easy for people to find the cleanest fuels for burning at home. Using fuels that are approved and labelled as Ready to Burn also means it’s easy to comply with Air Quality (Domestic Solid Fuels Standards) (England) Regulations 2020 that outlaw the sale of wet wood and house coal, which are the most polluting fuels.
