Grown in Britian – your guarantee of quality and sustainability
Oxford Charcoal’s full membership of the Grown in Britain program and certification ensures, that we follow the strict GiB standards to deliver sustainable products to you from legal and sustainable UK sources in accordance with the UK Government’s Timber Procurement Policy and the UK Forestry Standard.
However, it is important to recognise that there are significant differences between the FSC and GiB schemes. FSC is an international, non-governmental organisation which promotes responsible management of the world’s forests. In contrast GiB ensures that the timber is from woodlands with a UK Forestry Standard compliant management plan in place.
