We work across the forestry and forest products sector, with micro-organisations, trade associations, universities, small and medium sized enterprises and Blue Chip organisations. It was a great honour for to have been involved in the development and organisation of the project certification of timber used at the 2012 London Olympics. In addition, over the last 12 months we have worked with the University of Wolverhampton on a DFID funded project with 18 professionals from West Africa and Asia who were in the UK to develop understanding and appreciation of the requirements of FLEGT and VPA negotiations in their home countries. snow on trees
We currently come into contact with more than 200 companies a year. Some of our client’s testimonials are below:
We have worked with Ligna for over 5 years on various aspects of our environmental management. The ongoing service they provide represents value for money in a fast changing area of business support.
Ligna manages aspects of our auditing responsibilities at over 650 branches. The company always acts in a thoroughly professional and approachable way, enabling us to efficiently meet the requirements of our external stakeholders whilst providing us with useful internal information.
We have been working with Ligna since 2006. We needed to provide our members with a fast and efficient route to certification, which was easy to understand and straightforward to implement. Ligna designed and ran the BWF Group Chain of Custody scheme from its inception. Their knowledge, professionalism and commitment is unrivalled and they are a tremendous support to the BWF.
When we needed FSC® and PEFC, Ligna were quick to respond to our needs, efficient in their delivery and a pleasure to work with. Thanks.
Since 2009 Ligna has supported Smurfit Kappa’s implementation of Chain of Custody in the UK, Benelux and Ireland. Mike’s ability to grasp the issues we face has been invaluable and his knowledge and understanding of the intricacies of Chain of Custody has enabled us to maintain our systems and develop the offering to our customers.
Ligna has been providing support and guidance to our membership for the last three years. The company knows and understands the timber industry very well and, from all the feedback we receive, always delivers a commercially sensitive, cost effective and prompt service to the members they come into contact with.
We chose Ligna to help us attain both FSC® and PEFC Chain of Custody. We are delighted with the support and professionalism that comes from working with them.
Having first worked with Ligna back in 2007 when they supported us through FSC® and PEFC certification, we were confident that they could advise Howden on EUTR and its implementation. Mike has been responsive to our needs, provided clear , competent and professional guidance, and been an invaluable support to the team here during the months running up to March 3rd. We will continue to work with Ligna, as required, for the foreseeable future.
We have used Ligna to audit our compliance with the TTF’s Responsible Purchasing Policy for three years. We have always appreciated their efforts to work with us rather than for us in the compliance objective. The guidance they provide is always practical and worth listening to.
