In Support of ‘Grown in Britain Week’ Charltons have sponsored the planting of 20 trees. The trees are predominantly planted in school grounds, reserves and managed woodland where they will live their natural lifespan and meet their biodiversity targets.
Charltons are proud to be manufacturing products from timber which is one of the most sustainable building products. The objective is to keep the environment in balance and this principle permeates through many of our policies and actions.
Each tree planted helps to offset our environmental impact by “breathing” in CO2 emissions as it grows. The trees also provide sustainable habitat for wildlife and will enhance the natural landscape with native broad-leaved trees. For each tree planted, tCO2 is offset through a Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) project and meets international and The Carbon Footprint Standard.
