Our Enviromental Policy
Timber is recognised as one of the most environmentally friendly, commercial building materials. In comparison to PVC and steel, timber uses only a fraction of the non-renewable fossil fuels burned in production, and young trees remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as they grow.
In addition, the natural beauty and tactile quality of wood makes it a must have for contemporary or tradition homes. RGH Contracts Ltd carefully considers every step of the process, from the preparation and treatment of the natural wood, to expert design and craftsmanship. This attention to detail ensures that the results will not only be practical and durable, but also aesthetically stunning.
RGH Contracts Ltd is committed to operating in an environmentally friendly manner and takes positive steps to minimise the environmental impact of its operations and products. We endeavour to source timber from well-managed and sustainable forests and purchase the majority of our timber from merchants holding a 'Chain of Custody' certificate. Such certification is linked to FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) and PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) registration controlling the sourcing of timbers from 'managed' forestry facilities, where plantation programmes ensure the replenishment of new trees long before harvested timber has reached the end of its life cycle. The Company's suppliers of European Redwood abide by stringent replanting and wildlife preservation policies and many have Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes (PEFC) accreditation.
