How we work with Leroy Merlin on Wood
At least 3 times a year, Leroy Merlin is gathering all the information on the products containing wood. TFT support them by analysing the origin of the woods, the consistency of the information and the potential certifications. Through this risk analysis, we are able to notice the progress of Leroy Merlin toward responsible wood in their products range. Depending on the results of this analysis, we might be asked to conduct deeper studies on specific wood species.
In parallel, Leroy Merlin is supporting some community forest projects in Indonesia. We regularly update Leroy Merlin on the actions on the ground and we are trying to connect some of Leroy Merlin’s suppliers to those community programs.
In our last analysis, Leroy Merlin is in line with its goals regarding the timber policy; 100% of the tropical wood coming from certified or at least TFT labelled origins.
- Keep on working on this permanent analysis of the wood origins and wood species in the product ranges.
- If necessary, discussing relevant action plan for non compliant suppliers. Meetings with the purchasing department if relevant.
- Update on the progress in the projects supported by Leroy Merlin in Indonesia.
