Caring for the environment and each other
Environmental issues are important and Davison Highley takes their responsibility as designers and manufacturers very seriously. We are committed as a business to working to prevent pollution and ensure the protection of the environment, our employees and neighbours in everything we do.
Our products are designed with reducing environmental impact in mind. By using sustainable materials, reducing the amount of waste created during manufacture and through our renowned quality and longevity, which reduces the need to replace components or entire pieces of furniture through wear. We also work closely with our suppliers to ensure our designs are manufactured with environmentally ethical materials, components and practises.
We always strive to divert our waste away from landfill, preferring instead to reuse, recycle, or redistribute unwanted or unrequired manufacture materials and furniture internally or to good causes and charities. Where this is not possible we always ensure that all waste taken off site will be consigned to registered waste carriers for treatment / disposal at appropriate sites.
Davison Highley is certified to IS0-14001 and we are members of FIRA.
Our environmental policy is publicly available and is regularly reviewed to ensure we are continually improving and reducing our environmental impact.
