We recognise our responsibility to consider all aspects of our manufacturing processes in terms of environmental impact. We are committed to continually improving the ways in which we can protect the environment, including the reduction of pollution and waste. All relevant certificates and policies are available to view or download on our Downloads page:
We have retained our ‘Zero to landfill’ status for many years. Our production processes maximise material usage to minimise waste. Most of our waste is segregated for recycling through regulated contractors with the remainder sent to Energy from Waste.
Lee & Plumpton furniture is designed for strength and durability. In addition, we maintain a database of product drawings, materials and components. This approach enables us to supply replacement parts for refurbishment and, therefore, further extending useful life.
Our Chain of Custody certification (COC) with the FSC ® represents the unbroken path that certified products take: from the well managed forests of origin to the consumer. This certification, combined with our efforts to reduce carbon emissions via various recycling initiatives, transportation and our investment in solar power, are all part of our ongoing commitment to work towards a more sustainable and greener future.
We measure and assess our efforts through our integrated management system, BS EN ISO 14001:2015, by setting clear objectives for improvement, implementing a management programme and conducting regular reviews for continual improvement.
We are full members of FISP and this enables us to focus on reducing our social and environmental impact.
