As part of our Environment Policy, we have a committment to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle wherever possible.

As a long standing joinery manufacturer, we are aware of the demands on our earths precious resources and many of these resources are not renewable. So it is important to recycle wherever possible, reduce the use of virgin materials and reuse any waste we create.

Emanuel Whittaker Reduce, Reuse and Recycle in many aspects of our working day:

  • Our timber shavings and off cuts are sent to our boiler room to generate heat for our factory
  • Where possible we recycle product packaging
  • Waste paper and printer toners are recycled where possible
  • Suppliers are sourced locally to reduce fuel and carbon emissions

Certification Schemes

Building in timber carries important environmental responsibilities, and when properly managed is far preferable to the use of aluminium or petrochemical-based plastics.

Emanuel Whittaker only source and use a range of FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified products with a genuine Chain of Custody certificate. FSC is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organisation established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests. The FSC label provides a credible link between responsible production and consumption of forest products, enabling consumers and businesses to make purchasing decisions that benefit people and the environment.
