Doing our bit

As a responsible manufacturer, Techlam is dedicated to protecting human health, natural resources and the environment.

Techlam's sustainable pathway

Our policy is based on the integration of effective management practices into company activities with the aim of continually improving our environmental performance. Techlam complies with all applicable environmental laws and regulations.

We assign management responsibility to ensure that our employees are aware of their individual responsibilities and provide effective information and training to support them to contribute effectively.

We continually assess the environmental impact of our activities and products, and drive the business to reduce our impact via the establishment of appropriate controls and measures.

Our wastage programme ensures all by-products and adhesives are disposed without impact on the environment and any off cut timber is carefully converted into energy for heating.

We hold certification for FSC® – our licence numbers are SGS-COC-010729 – FSC-C130502. FSC® is internationally recognised as the most rigorous environmental and social standard for responsible forest management. Its great strength lies in its ability to encourage dialogue between various sectoral interests. This partnership among business, the public sector, and civil society provides a unique tool for dealing with the issues surrounding forestry.

We are continuing to take the sustainable pathway in our business, the cost of this is superficial to the benefits it creates for our clients.
