FSC - Forest Stewardship Council – Forests For All Forever

Unlike most processed construction materials which cause carbon emissions, wood products store carbon absorbed by the trees they were made from. Building with wood keeps this carbon out of the atmosphere for longer.  FSC-certified wood is also harvested from forests that are managed to ensure regeneration, so new trees grow and absorb more carbon.

FSC-certified wood comes from responsibly managed forests, so is renewable. It is also reusable, and requires less energy to recycle than other materials. We are fully certified and audited on a regular basis.


The Manufacturing Guild Mark

The Manufacturing Guild Mark has been the mark of excellence, distinguishing Britain’s top furnishing manufacturers, since 1993. Simple to say but not simple to achieve.  Holders are expected to attain the highest standards in all aspects of their business and these are determined by a rigorous independent which is repeated every three years.

Unlike other Guild Marks, The Manufacturing Guild Mark is awarded to the company and not a specific product or product range. It is also only open to those who manufacture most of their products in the UK.  All John Sankey pieces are manufactured in the UK.
