At Eric Bates and Sons, we are committed to minimising our effect on the environment and strive to maintain sustainability. Much of our furniture is FSC certified and the timbers used in our manufacturing process are sourced from FSC managed forests through reputable UK timber merchants. We endeavor to recycle wherever possible.

Our workshop facility in Hoveton uses a waste recycling plant which consists of a wood chipper, extractor, and wood burner to recycle our manufacturing waste to produce our own heat source referred to as “biomass” and we have also recently installed a 66kw solar system that will produce a large percentage of the electricity we consume.

This is a further example of our commitment to the environment by reducing our carbon footprint and our belief that this, in turn, is supporting our children’s future.

Eric Bates and Sons is committed to continuously improving our environmental performance by monitoring the effect of our manufacturing processes and embracing new initiatives as they become available.
