We are sure your attention, just like ours, has been focused on the events unfolding around the horrific and distressing Russian military invasion of Ukraine.
A large proportion of timber for the UK shed market is Russian. We have always predominantly purchased Scandinavian timber - however, due to the challenges of timber availability over the last couple of years there has been a small amount of Russian timber mixed in with our large volumes of Scandinavian.
As a result we believe we have a responsibility to take action and we can confirm that Powersheds Ltd will not purchase any further Russian timber.
We have in place a thorough timber sourcing due diligence process which assesses suppliers, assuring our customers that we are always mitigating against environmental, social, and legal risks to our supply chain. Any timber purchased is in line with our internal timber responsibility and sustainability policy and this will now be updated with our new timber purchasing statement.
The events of recent weeks have been difficult to watch and our thoughts continue to be with everyone affected.
