Confor launches new website to better promote forestry and wood sector

The Confederation of Forest Industries (Confor) has launched its new website.

Along with member information and a library of key documentation, the website highlights the benefits that forestry and wood sector brings to the UK economy.

In this view, the new online platform features relevant media contents including four short videos, which look at the breadth of forestry and wood's contribution.

"This has been a very successful year for Confor so far and the website launch continues the positive momentum," said Confor's Chief Executive Stuart Goodall.

"We recognised some time ago that there was a clear need for simple visual materials to tell the forestry and timber story to a wider audience. We were delighted by Our Forests Our People and the positive reaction to it, and the animation has built on this. The new videos take things a step further by appealing to different audiences and building out from the core messages."

"To be a successful sector, we need to tackle outdated misperceptions and demonstrate the significant benefits we provide to society. This website, and our continuing efforts to promote forestry and timber through the media, are vital to achieving that goal.”
