Timber and Timber Products
Willmott Dixon is committed to sourcing timber and timber products from well-managed forests.
Sourcing timber responsibly
We are committed to ensuring that illegal timber is not used on any of our projects. Our Group Sustainable Procurement Policy, which all our supply chain partners must abide by, clearly sets out our requirements for sourcing forest products from well-managed sources and the evidence that must be provided. We have publicly committed to prioritising FSC, PEFC and recycled timber and wood products.
Community Wood Recycling
To avoid surplus wood from going to landfill, we’re partnered with Community Wood Recycling – a social enterprise that collects and reuses waste wood to create work and training for local disadvantaged people.
In 2019, Community Wood removed 645 tonnes of wood from our waste stream which created six paid jobs and helped to train 15 individuals. Click here to see our full 2019 report.
