At Endurance, we appreciate that every step in a manufacturing process can have an environmental impact. That is why we have developed a core of strong environmental values that we and our workforce strive to maintain. From manufacture through to nationwide distribution, we have considered long-term strategies to minimise our carbon output.
All of the timber used in our doors is harvested from Finnish forests which are managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of past and future generations. For every tree we fell for production, 4 additional seedlings are planted in their place.
Sustainability is a driving force within the REHAU Group strategy, which has been integrated into their day-to-day operations.

Metsa’s LVL Kerto sits at the core of an Endurance door, not only providing the strength and security associated with a 45mm thick timber slab, but the carbon dioxide that is held within forests and stored in the products made from renewable wood acts as a carbon sink.
“Everything we do involves sustainability – from the forest all the way to the products. Our main raw material is renewable wood from sustainably managed northern forests. We use every part of the tree as efficiently as possible. The majority of our products can replace the use of fossil resources and help us move towards a climate-neutral future.”

In 2022, we invested £300,000 into installing 500 solar panels on the roof of our factory in Brigg, North Lincolnshire.
Our new solar panels build on an existing focus at Endurance Doors of only using electricity generated from renewable sources, rather than fossil fuels, throughout our production processes.
As we aim to be a completely carbon neutral business by 2030, we are focusing on installing new methods of improving our sustainability.
In the near future, we plan to provide Electric Powered Vehicles to our nationwide Business Development Managers and Service Engineers, while also transitioning our North Lincolnshire production facilities to a single use plastic free facility.
