Cornwall-based Gripsure manufactures non-slip decking using sustainable timber, which is certified under the industry flagship standards of FSC and PEFC. The firm, which has supplied decking to the Eden Project, Kew Gardens and Center Parcs, also uses materials such as bamboo, Accoya and Kebony, which are more sustainable than hardwoods.
Throughout 2021, Gripsure has pledged to plant a native tree at a nearby Cornish farm for every online order. Through its support for Cornwall charity the Field to Forest Foundation, the company is aiming to plant 1,000 trees, helping to establish a beautiful new woodland. Through continuous improvement, Gripsure is also working towards the ISO 14001 environmental certification.
Managing director Mike Nicholson said: “As a company that works with timber, we take our commitment to the environment very seriously indeed. Whether they are buying decking for a commercial project or for their own back garden, our customers are increasingly interested in our environmental ethos.”
