Ridgeons Forest Products wins international recognition

Published:  15 March, 2013

Ridgeons has reinforced its commitment to sustainability by gaining an internationally recognised standard for its environmental credentials.

Ridgeons Forest Products, the timber division of the Ridgeons Group – one of the largest independent timber and builders’ merchants in the UK – has achieved ISO14001 certification for its Environmental Management System.

The international standard formally recognises Ridgeons’ commitment to proactively assess its environmental policy and manage its impact on the environment. Accredited organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed annually to ensure progress is being maintained.

General manager Jem Slee said: “The ISO14001 accreditation has helped to make us aware of how simple changes can make a big difference. Not only does it demonstrate our commitment and dedication to lowering our impact on the environment, it also provides our customers with the confidence and assurance that we are an environmentally conscious business.”
