Sustainability

As a sustainable and responsible company Natural Structures recognises the ecological, social and economic importance of protecting our environment. We are fully committed to complying with the requirements of the Environmental Protection Act 1990. As part of this commitment, Natural Structures will endeavour to integrate environmental considerations into all our decision-making processes and procurement policies.

In order to maintain and sustain the company's environmental commitment, all suppliers of timber shall:

  • Comply with the requirements of Environmental Legislation and approved codes of practice, co-operating fully with relevant statutory bodies and trade associations.
  • Ensure that they are aware of the environmental impact of their products and traceability of their raw materials.

To further enhance our commitment we undertake to avoid purchasing timber from any of the following:

  • Wood harvested from forest areas where traditional or civil rights are violated.
  • Wood harvested from non FSC certified forests, with high conservation value, which are under threat.
  • Wood harvested from genetically modified (GM) trees.
  • Illegally harvested wood.
  • Wood from Natural forests, that have been converted to plantations or non-forest use.

Natural Structures will also encourage our suppliers to ensure that wood is not purchased from sources that are considered controversial by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or Programme for the Endorsement of Forestry Certifications (PEFC).
