Turning Advice into Action through Policies and Standards

We can help you develop and implement sustainable sourcing policies and standards which not only reflect best practice in your sector, but also your organisations’ needs.

Annie Adams Consulting works with employees from different areas of a company or organisation, to develop practical forest commodity policies and tools.

Policy Guidance, Sourcing Support and Assessment of Accreditations

We work closely with employees from different areas of a company or organisation, to develop forest commodity policies and tools that are ambitious, but practical for individuals, departments and the wider business. During this process we impart knowledge and motivate staff so that you have the in-house capacity to manage your policies and standards moving forwards.

 

Our technical understanding of responsible and sustainable sourcing options is grounded in extensive experience of working with certification schemes such as FSC, PEFC and RSPO.

  • Certification Scheme Assessments - we have led assessments of FSC, PEFC and RSPO schemes for key buyers, including Kingfisher and the UK Government, and donors such as USAID.
  • Technical Responsible Sourcing Advice - we have provided guidance to buyers and suppliers across UK Government, as well as corporations including Samsung Electronics, B&Q and Marks and Spencer.
  • Responsible and Legal Sourcing Support – we have assisted Kingfisher in updating EU Timber Regulation due diligence and risk assessment tools for its timber product sourcing teams.

Training

Working with you, we will design a bespoke training programme, which may include different courses or classes to suit the divisional or individuals’ requirements. We can help your staff, from Board and Management Team level to those coming face to face with clients or customers, to accurately understand your policies and standards. As Central Point of Expertise on Timber technical lead for the UK government, Annie has designed and delivered responsible sourcing training to hundreds of UK Government buyers and suppliers, international retailers and global manufacturers.
