How and where has the supplier excelled in our audit?
Governance They have a rigorous due diligence process when it comes to complying with the EUTR, and insist on training across the supply chain.
Materials The majority of products are made up of wood using water-based polishes and stains, so that products are safer to produce and dispose of. They offer a refurbishment and reupholstery service to help increase the longevity of their products, so that they can be enjoyed across generations.
Production Head office has been intelligently designed with sustainability in mind, and on the rare occasions it does require heating, this is done so using waste products from the manufacturing process. This helps to reduce waste and offset carbon emissions.
