Environmental Policy

Our Environmental & Timber Procurement Policy

DPV Environmental and Timber Procurement Policy

DPV believes that timber is one of the earth’s most important renewable resources. We  are committed to supporting the responsible management of the world’s forests by promoting the  trade in timber and timber products from well-managed forests.

Endangered Species

We will not trade in timber species prohibited under the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).

Traceability and Supplier Monitoring

We are developing systems to obtain the clearest practicable information about the source of raw material in our products, so that we can make responsible purchasing decisions and support our customers’ environmental needs.

Legality

We are committed to purchasing timber and timber products from legal sources. We unreservedly condemn illegal logging practices and aim to keep ourselves informed of changes in international processes and legislation.

Timber Certification

We support international efforts to improve forest management, such as the development of credible timber certification schemes. We recognise the independent certification of forests and the process chain is the most useful tool for providing assurances that timber comes from legal and well-managed forests. We will only use labels or accept certificates that include environmental or sustainability claims if they are supported by publicly available standards drawn up in a fully participatory,
transparent, and objective manner – backed by independent third-party verification.

Customers

We aim to help our customers meet their environmental commitments by providing a range of products that meet the highest environmental standards.

Environmental Impact

We make every reasonable effort to minimise the environmental impact of our business, as for example by the efficient use of energy and recycling of waste at our sites.

Training

We train our staff to fulfil their role in our environmental commitments.

Continuous Improvement

DPV is committed to achieving Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Chain of Custody certification and Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC) Chain of Custody certification during 2013.
