When it comes to sustainability, Forest & Maker is no ordinary company. Our commitment to ethical and environmentally responsible commercial furniture runs right through our core.
We aim to go well beyond what is expected of us. Which means when you specify our furniture, you can be sure that every piece is crafted from the finest hardwood; hand-selected and sourced from certified, sustainable sources.
*One of hundreds of trees we have planted back into the UK.
We only buy timber from suppliers and forests that are licensed or certified by Grown in Britain, the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC). We have also committed to the Forest Product Chain of Custody (FPCC) scheme. When you specify Forest & Maker, you can be confident that the wood we use is home grown and is compliant with the UK forestry standard and the Government’s public procurement policy.
All of our timber is from certified, sustainable sources. However, every now and then, we might also consider using an individually felled or naturally fallen tree. To craft a piece of furniture from wood that might otherwise become firewood gives the timber a long and useful second life.
We sponsor several ethical tree-planting projects. Together with our partners, we want to restore degraded woodlands and create productive, healthy and well-managed forests for the future. An active tree-planting programme is good for people, wildlife and the wider environment.
We are always looking for new ways to use left-over timber. Sold through our Forest to Home brand, we make a range of household items from the timber off-cuts. Each piece is crafted with the same care and precision as our main furniture range.
