Environmental, Social & Governance

As the UK’s leading outdoor living provider, we recognise the impact our operation may have within the areas we operate.

As a responsible business we align our environmental strategy to give back to those communities and strive to make a positive impact.

From design to delivery, we seek to ensure our environmental footprint is limited or balanced where ever possible. Supporting research and innovation in the field of plastic recycling and limiting our carbon footprint through the installation of vehicle electric charging points at our Head Office, and nationwide showrooms.

From delivery optimisation using dynamic scheduling software to environmentally friendly products used to reduce the impact of the fuels we use to power our operations.
