Northern Irish builders merchants JP Corry, have been awarded Chain of Custody certification from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) for a wide range of timber products.
Chain of Custody is a process that, using independent auditing, rigorously documents certified timber from the forest to the final point of purchase.
The process tracks timber through each stage of the supply chain, from forest and logging through sawmill, factory and distributor, to timber merchant and contractor. This provides a level of transparency and traceability to guarantee compliance with demands for ethically sourced timber products.
Stephen Megarry, Managing Director of JP Corry said: “We are proud to offer certified timber products to our customers, confirming that JP Corry has strict procurement policies using environmentally sound sources of supply”.
JP Corry are part of the Saint Gobain group.
