Gordon Timber

Environment

Timber is the planet’s most environmentally friendly building material, requiring much less energy to produce than alternatives such as plastic, steel and concrete. More than that, timber is unique, because the more that is produced, the greater the benefit to the environment.

Gordon Timber is well-placed to capitalise on Scotland’s increasing timber resources – the result of a combination of maturing forests, a modern industry and rising demand. Over 80% of our timber comes from sources certified with the Forest Stewardship Council ® (FSC ®) certification – the international symbol of environmentally sound forest management and sustainability.
