Our goal is to ensure all timber and wood products supplied to HHGL Limited (trading as Homebase in the UK & ROI) (‘HHGL’) originate from:
We have a zero tolerance approach to illegal timber. To ensure that our goal is achieved, HHGL is a member of the Global Forest & Trade Network (GFTN) which is WWF’s initiative to eliminate illegal logging. For more information on the GFTN, see http://gftn.panda.org/gftn_worldwide/europe/uk/
We work closely with suppliers to confirm the legality of wood products. HHGL evaluate all suppliers of timber products, and conduct annual timber supply chain due diligence to verify the source and chain-of-custody of the timber products we purchase. We work with key industry groups, government and environmental organisations to continuously improve our timber sourcing practices.
From 2017, we will be monitoring and reporting supplier performance and agreed action plans on an annual basis. In sensitive forest regions the timber that we purchase must have credible third party certification. This ensures that these regions are protected and the ongoing biodiversity of the forest is maintained.
More than 74 per cent of HHGL’s total timber products are sourced from independently certified forests or sourced with demonstrated progress towards achieving independent certification, such as that provided by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).
We believe that our customers and team members have a right to know that the timber we sell is responsibly sourced and we remain committed to ensuring that we provide this assurance.
To deliver on our policy commitment we exclude timber sources where:
In accordance with our terms and conditions, all products supplied to HHGL must be compliant with regulations applicable in the UK and ROI, including the EU Timber Regulation.
Global Forest & Trade Network (GFTN)
Homebase has been a participant in WWF’s Global Forest & Trade Network (GFTN) in the UK since 1992.
All GFTN participants commit to progressively sourcing forest products from well-managed sources.
To highlight our progress towards meeting our commitments to source well-managed and recycled materials, we’re publishing the status of our current supply chain for various categories of forest goods, as defined by the GFTN, see it here.
