     Headline Quotes
WWF-UK’s Forest Campaign “Trade bodies like the TTF can and do play a significant role in bringing about new business norms that create sustainable industries as well as sustainable forests."
Julia Young, Manager of WWF’s Global Forest and Trade Network Manager in the UK

Burwalls House energy saving redevelopment begins “We provided an Energy Statement, SAP and SBEM Calculations to help the new-build elements achieve Code Level 3 and the whole site hit a 15% reduction in energy. To minimise both energy demand and the use of renewables, we upgraded the existing stables to current regulations and improved the energy efficiency of the new build elements.”
Marcus Eves, Darren Evans Assessments Ltd

managed Forest on San Juan Island “Travis Perkins has done what we are asking of businesses in the UK that trade timber and timber products, and that is to systematically look into the sourcing of these goods to ensure they are coming from legal and sustainable sources. This investment by TP and their ongoing commitment to embed sustainability in their business, and be transparent and specific about their progress"...
Julia Young, Manager of WWF’s Global Forest and Trade Network Programme in the UK
