Protecting the environment

Reducing our carbon footprint

Our Mission

It is important that we all commit to reducing the impact that our business activities may have on the environment and we aim to adopt the following practices at all times:

  • At Central Woodchip we are committed to; and monitor, waste reduction at our site, we re-use all by-products of our raw timber materials for different markets ensuring that there is little or no waste.
  • Biomass Boilers provide the Heat for our manufacturing process and this has a carbon neutral effect due to using woodchip fuel as opposed to using a fossil fuel for our processing.
  • We are installing EV Charge Points for Electric Vehicle use at our sites as we move to the new vehicle standards for the UK.
  • Our heating system is a closed system and therefore we have no water wastage.
  • Our raw material used on site is small virgin round wood log, for processing to biomass woodchips. This is predominantly material that has been rejected from the sawmills.

We encourage greener transport by:

  • Employing staff members at each site who are local and live within six miles of the site.
  • Encouraging staff to use greener fuels in their personal vehicles if possible.
  • Installing EV Charge Points at our site to allow our staff and visitors to have access to electric vehicle charge points.
  • Ensuring all company vehicles (such as delivery vehicles, plant/machinery, or company cars) are as energy efficient as possible, and where possible these will migrate to electric in the next 2-3 years.
