Hannaford celebrates FSC Friday 2016
As retail brands seek to innovate and differentiate, St Albans based commercial joinery firm, Hannaford, is increasingly being called upon to deliver unique projects using wood, often blended with other materials to create stunning interiors.
Hannaford excels in the production of unique reception desks, bars, counters, storage units and other contemporary furniture. Where visual impact, accuracy, durability and restrictions on space are critical elements, Hannaford’s project team always strives to exceed client expectations.
As well as being highly creative, the business is also extremely conscious of the environment. Hannaford was one of the first certified members of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), a non-government organisation which is tasked with ensuring there’s a sustainable balance of tree planting and timber usage for future generations. Wherever possible, Hannaford specifies timber acquired from sources accredited by FSC.
In 2008, FSC launched its annual celebration of responsible forestry, called FSC Friday, which takes place on the last Friday of September.
Every year, schools, businesses and other organisations across the UK get involved in spreading the word about the importance of responsible forestry. FSC Friday became an international event in 2009 and it is now celebrated in 31 countries.
Businesses have celebrated FSC Friday in various ways over the years, such as holding staff awareness days or offering customer promotions. If you register online, we will send you materials to display and distribute at your workplace.
One of Hannaford’s stated aims is to minimise the impact of its commercial joinery business on the environment and the firm takes the issue of sustainability very seriously. It recycles and reuses, purchases environmentally friendly materials and office consumables, as well as implementing practical methods to reduce energy consumption.
Commented Hannaford’s Finance Director, Richard Williams:
“Sustainability is important to our business and is also of increasing importance to our clients, when specifying materials. We’ve been pleased to actively participate in this year’s FSC Friday campaign to highlight the benefits of responsible forestry.”
