As an independent retailer we are very conscious of the needs of our customers, and we strive to make sure that the products we offer will achieve a high level of sustainability and it is with this in mind that we share below some details about our main supplier in respect to what they are doing as a responsible manufacturer.

Symphony have always taken their responsibilities to the environment seriously and they are committed to playing their part by learning, innovating, and implementing sustainable actions to limit their impact on the planet.

With the furniture being timber based they ensure that the wood used is sourced from responsibly managed forests and is FSC » certified. Also, they strive to include recycled content where they can, such as in the cabinet board which includes a minimum of 50% recycled content and in our recent kitchen ranges that use 100% recycled chipboard.

All the timber-based products used in the furniture are sourced with full FSC® certification.

This ensures that the wood comes from a well-managed forest that is run in accordance with strict environmental, social, and economic standards. Symphony became the first in the industry to be accredited with a full Forest Stewardship Council * (FSC®) chain of custody and are committed to supporting international systems of timber sourcing from independently verified well managed forests.

No manufacturing waste is sent to landfill, waste materials are used to fire the factory biomass boiler which was installed in 2007 and it negated the need for a gas supply to the site.

Water Based Paints

New_england_doorSymphony have led the way in the quality of their paint finishing and proudly hold the accolade of being the first British furniture manufacturer to successfully convert all its paint from solvent to an environmentally friendly water-based option for all the paint to order ranges.

All the cabinets are made from chipboard that has a minimum of 50% recycled content.

Many of the chipboard frontals have a similar recycled content, however we were delighted to be able to recently introduce decors that use 100% recycled chipboard.

There are four decors in our collection that use 100% recycled chipboard: Concrete, Grey Walnut, Grey Driftwood and Light Driftwood. These are available across the standard kitchen brands and the handleless Linear brand.

We hope that by sharing these details with you it will make your decision to buy a new kitchen easier in the knowledge that we are partners with companies that care about the environment.

Live Well, Buy Well.
