Reducing Our Carbon Footprint
Russell Timber is committed to continuous reduction of energy consumption in manufacturing and minimising haulage emissions. Power usage in manufacturing is reduced with 'soft starts' - staggering production hours through breaks. Low energy LED lighting is installed throughout our premises.
Deliveries are co-ordinated so products are packaged and transported vertically rather than horizontally, ensuring all trailers are full and space is utilised to the maximum. Returning lorries are also loaded for maximum utilisation. All lorries comply with the latest Euro 5 emissions requirements.
