N R Burnett Goes Green!
If you want to do your bit for the environment or are eco conscious.
You can be assured you're buying from sustainable forests at N R Burnett!
At N R Burnett Ltd we are proud to be doing our bit for the earth and that means being FSC & PEFC certified, The FSC label ensures that the trees that are harvested for our timber are replaced or allowed to regenerate naturally, this helps prevent deforestation which in turn helps protect millions of plants, trees and animals.
Deforestation not only removes vegetation that is important for removing carbon dioxide from the air, but the act of clearing the forests also produces greenhouse gas emissions which together are the second largest cause of climate change.
This is why charities such as WWF, Greenpeace and The Woodland Trust work so closely with FSC and PEFC.
Some other benefits of using wood:
Wood has the lowest embodied energy of any mainstream building material. Producing steel, for example, requires 24 times the energy needed to produce wood,
The thermal properties are five times better than concrete, ten times better than brick and 350 times better than steel, wood is an excellent material for thermal insulation.
Not only that, wood is attractive, practical and long-lasting,
Wood is a versatile and durable material. Research has shown that in buildings and interiors it is perceived as warm, relaxing and welcoming.
So if you want an easy way to do your bit for the environment and climate change, consider N R Burnett for all your timber needs!
Our forests give us many things like books, tissues, furniture and so much more. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) helps take care of forests and the people and wildlife who call them home.
FSC is an international, non-governmental organization dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests.
PEFC is an international non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to promoting Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) through independent third-party certification. PEFC works throughout the entire forest supply chain to promote good practice in the forest and to ensure that timber and non-timber forest products are produced with respect for the highest ecological, social and ethical standards. PEFC’s distinctive ‘green trees’ logo make it a truly global brand and means customers and consumers are able to identify products from sustainably managed forests.
