Sustainability and the environment are important to Charltons; as a result nothing goes to waste!  Sustainability and the environment

By-products are recycled from the manufacturing processes. 

  • Sawdust goes to local farmers
  • Off-cuts for firewood
  • Bark/mulch as soil improves (alternative to peat)
  • An onsite partnership supplying Green Forest Renewables with wood chips for Biomass fuel.

Our usage of fossil fuels is being reduced and minimised wherever possible. Biomass heating is being used within the manufacturing operation.

Timber is purchased on a sustainable basis. We are certified in FSC® , PEFC & Grown in Britain. We also try to buy locally but many small woodland owners are unable to afford the FSC costs. However, it is essential to make best use of all of our resources. In such cases we ensure it is sustainable with correct felling licences.
