Responsible timber sourcing with John Lewis Partnership

Proforest helped the John Lewis Partnership, a major UK retailer, to develop and implement its responsible timber purchasing policy and implementation programme.

John Lewis Partnership | 2002—2012

Proforest worked with John Lewis Partnership to develop and implement its sourcing policy and programme for timber products. Over many years we provided regular support to the purchasing department, with the overall objective of maintaining and improving performance of suppliers' performance.

Proforest provided support to move products and suppliers through the stages towards the final goal of becoming FSC-certified. We helped them ensure that all products originating from high risk source countries achieved a minimum level of assurance. During 2012 we also supported John Lewis Partnership to prepare for the incoming  EU Timber regulation.
