Chalon recognises that it has a simple duty to acknowledge and contribute to the protection and conservation the world's timber supplies and other finite resources. The ways in which we do this are outlined in the following statements.
Our policy statements are constantly under review, especially in light of new information on scientific advances, environmental and safety legislation and industrial activity:
- Chalon will ensure that all relevant legislation, regulations and other requirements, including safety in the workplace, are met and where possible and appropriate exceeded.
- Chalon will prevent pollution, and aim to reduce waste and the consumption of non-renewable resources and encourage greater efficiency, recovery and recycling wherever feasible.
- Chalon will source timber from sustainable sources. The primary sources of certified timber shall be the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC), the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC) and the Finnish Forest Certification Scheme (FFCS). Ultimately, through mutual recognition, all of these organisations should be able to demonstrate high forest management standards within a framework compatible with ISO14001 and EMAS.
- The Company demonstrates its commitment to these policies by being able to supply goods when available under the following certified chain of custody supplier status: FSC Certification number TT- COC-1892 and PEFC Certification number TT-PEFC-0032.
