Boots has a long-standing commitment to responsible sourcing
As a founding member of the WWF’s Global Forest and Trade Network in 1995 and as a continuing active member, Boots UK is committed to the aim of sourcing wood, pulp and paper products only from independently accredited sources such as those certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
The business undertakes due diligence to assess and mitigate any risk of illegal and unwanted forest products entering into the UK market from the supply chain. The business collects as much information on supply chain sources as possible and systematically works to eliminate poor sources which may not benefit forests.
Boots UK continues to reinforce its commitments through robust sustainable sourcing standards which apply both to products and goods not for resale. Boots UK is also an active supporter of the WWF Forest Campaign which aims to reform the EU Timber Regulation to prevent the import of illegally harvested timber products into the EU and make responsible forest trade the norm.
