Sustainability

We pride ourselves on working with our planet’s only mass-volume renewable building material – timber, the solution to achieving net zero carbon targets. It is ecological and sustainable and a truly remarkable structural material

#Timefortimber

We support the #TimeforTimber campaign which explains how timber construction can help support the economy and help us reach our net zero carbon targets by 2050. Have a look at the campaign video and listen to what some of the industry’s leading experts have to say on the subject. You can read more about the campaign at timefortimber.org

 

Our approach to sustainability

When it comes to a sustainable built environment, material choices matter. Wood is a natural, renewable and sustainable material for building, with a lighter carbon footprint than steel or concrete.

  • Maximizing wood use in both residential and commercial construction will remove millions tons of CO2 from the atmosphere annually.
  • Wood stores carbon and, with the least embodied energy of all major building materials, it requires less energy from harvest to transport, manufacturing, installation, maintenance and disposal or recycling.
  • Harvesting and replanting increases the forests’ carbon sink potential as the rate of sequestration is greater during young, vigorous growth.
  • Active forest management, or forest thinning, mitigates wildfires, cuts carbon emissions, expands wildlife habitats, and creates jobs in rural areas.

Net zero carbon

Using timber in construction is so important to help meet the net zero carbon targets set by government and industry bodies alike.  Converting timber into a workable construction product uses far less energy and creates far less pollution than other primary materials such as brick and blocks, steel and concrete. Any waste timber that we produce is 100% recyclable. This is why we’re proud to build with timber.

 

Wood for Good campaign

Using more wood can help us reduce CO2 and fight climate change. We are therefore supporting the Wood for Good “Wood CO2ts Less” campaign which aims to promote the use of all wood products as low carbon materials, illustrating how using wood can help reduce CO2 in the atmosphere and contribute to slowing climate heating.
