Premier Interlink (Waco UK Ltd) is proud to be one of the first modular building companies to gain FSC certification.
Premier Interlink are committed to minimising the environmental impact of our operations and our products through the adoption of sustainable practices and continuous improvement in environmental performance. We believe that respect for the environment is critical to the success of our business and our aim therefore, is to continuously improve our performance. By gaining FSC certification we demonstrate this to our clients.
The process of gaining certification involved making our suppliers aware of their responsibilities and compiling an FSC approved supplier list. Whilst robust management systems were already in place as part of ISO 14001 continual improvement, the process involved reviewing all procedures and introducing some additional checks to ensure only FSC materials are used in our products. Additional training was given to all front line staff and an awareness training programme was undertaken for all company personnel to ensure the processes were understood.
Being awarded FSC certification is especially relevant in the year 2011, as the United Nations General Assembly declared it as the International Year of Forests and Premier Interlink are proud to play their part in helping to promote the responsible management of the world
