At James Burleigh Limited we recognise our social responsibility as a commercial concern and are committed to the protection of the world’s resources by sourcing the component parts of our products responsibly, ensuring any waste generated during manufacture is kept to a minimum and transporting the finished goods efficiently. Our tables and benches are made using three specific components: laminate, timber and adhesives.* Each component is carefully sourced to minimise the negative impact of our company’s activities on the environment. To this end we can source:
- Compact laminate from two companies with a demonstrable commitment to conserving and preserving the environment. Both have been granted an Environmental Management System with ISO14001: 1996(E) accreditation and membership of the Greenguard Certification Program administered by the Greenguard Environmental Institute, an industry-independent non-profit organisation whose mission is to improve public health and quality of life by helping manufacturers build better and safer products.
- Timber from PEFC or FSC certified sources
- Water based adhesive and lacquer
We also carefully deliver our tables unpackaged where possible.
*Any upholstery for benches is provided by a renowned UK furniture company which has gained accreditation to the environmental standard BS EN ISO14001:2004
