McGregor Hardwoods Environmental Policy
McGregor Hardwood promotes and supports all environmental issues related to the timber products they supply. The company is fully committed to play their part in eradicating illegal logging and poor forest management as set out in the United Kingdom Timber regulations (UKTR) which came into effect in 2021. McGregor’s adhere strictly to the supply chain due diligence guidelines. Consequently, we will only import timber products via approved suppliers from around the world. In addition to our strict due diligence process we also purchase as much product as possible from either 3rd party verified legal sources or chain of custody certified sources (FSC PEFC) and FLEGT licenced timber (currently from Indonesia).
Our parent company (Murdock Hardwood) is a chain of custody certified company. Having chain of custody certification verifies that the forest-based materials are produced according to rigorous standards and these standards are followed along the products path to becoming finished goods, it signals that the timber used during production has met the chain of custody requirements at every step in the supply chain from sourcing to distribution.
All our door, mouldings stock come with FLEGT licences which confirms that any timber involved in the production of the door complies fully with the relevant laws of the country of export. FLEGT licenced timber products are considered to comply with the EU/UK timber regulations with the advantage of having these licences eliminating the risk of importing illegal timber
It is considered that with best practices observed, timber and wood products are the ultimate sustainable and recyclable materials, requiring low energy consumption to process and thermally efficient in use.
