FSC® Certification for Cottam
Cottam are delighted to announce that we are now certified to Forest Stewardship Council ® standards for the manufacture, supply and distribution of wooden brushes.
FSC is the world's fastest growing forest certification scheme, driven by increasing market demand for responsible products. More and more businesses and consumers prefer products from well managed forests. FSC provides the much needed connection between the forest and the end user, ensuring that products with the FSC label uphold the highest social and environmental benefits.
Kathy Bevan, Sales Director, commented, “We took the decision to work towards FSC certification to strengthen our supply chain as well as publicly demonstrating our commitment to responsible sourcing. We manufacture a vast range of products in-house and compliment this with product sourced from around the world. Being able to work with other FSC certified organisations gives us confidence in the quality of the end product and the reliability of supply. We believe our customers will welcome the endorsement that the FSC logo gives. We’re enabling them to make a responsible and conscientious choice in using FSC certified product.”
In all it took just over 3 weeks to incorporate FSC procedures into Cottam’s existing systems. Cottam operate a bespoke “Total Business System” which covers all company activities and is compliant with ISO9001:2008 so it was a logical decision to include FSC-STD-40-004 v2-1 within the existing system.
New ranges from Cottam will automatically be certified as FSC, while existing products will transition to FSC over the next 12 months.
