BSW Timber Group achieves Grown in Britain license
Grown in Britain has granted its licence to BSW Timber Group. By achieving their Grown in Britain licence, it will allow BSW Timber group to use the Grown in Britain trademark which can now be applied to nearly 1 million tonnes of timber from the company.
The certification scheme promotes the timber supply chain integrity assuring that the wood has been grown in the UK in accordance with the UK Government Timber Procurement Policy. It covers all types of wood – soft and hard – just as long as it was grown in the UK.
Commenting on BSW Timber’s commitment to sourcing locally supplied timber, Grown in Britain chief executive, Dougal Driver, said: “The leadership shown by BSW to secure a Grown in Britain licence is fantastic news for the homegrown sector and gives us a terrific boost as we aim to create a sustainable future for our wonderful woods and forests. Buyers can now look for the Grown in Britain logo in depots and stores and back British business and enhance our woods and forests at the same time.”
