Timber contributes substantially to the UK Construction, Manufacturing and Service Industries, providing jobs across the skills spectrum and adding value of ca. £20bn to the UK economy.

Our industries represent the only sustainable supply chain on the planet that embodies and constructs with carbon.

Building with Carbon and growing our low carbon economy is the future.

Concrete and Steel defined the first Industrial Revolution. Responsibly sourced Timber will come to define the second.
