Certification story

Alsford Timber is one of the largest timber merchants in South East England. It has a long-standing fundamental commitment to ensuring that all timber-based products traded through our business are responsibly sourced.

As part of its ongoing commitment to reducing its environmental impact, the company has achieved the Planet Mark certification based on the commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability in its business operations by measuring and reducing its carbon footprint and engaging its stakeholders. 

Understanding and measuring its carbon footprint is the first step in identifying ways to minimise its impact on the planet. Over the next year, it will be working towards reducing its carbon emissions and sharing its journey with its community to inspire others. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, the company will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hope to encourage continual improvements within its community.

Going beyond

Through Planet Mark, Alsford Timber has protected an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth directly supports the Asháninka community in Central Peru.

It has also helped the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future.

Future targets

Reduce carbon emissions by at least 2.5% each year

To recertify next year Alsford Timber must reduce emissions by 2.5%.

Aim to reduce carbon emissions by 5% each year

A 5% year-on-year reduction is the target reduction recommended by Planet Mark.
