CRT & The Environment

The environment in one way or another makes daily headlines across the world, with the issue of global warming at its heart and the recognition that the planet’s resources are precious.

Timber, as a living, natural resource, is highly sustainable and is ever more the preferred choice for building, aided by government policies and legislation.


Timber in Construction

Timber is a natural, renewable, biodegradable, non-toxic and recyclable. Timber gives excellent levels of natural thermal insulation. When sourced from certified well-managed forests there is no better building material in terms of impact upon the environment.


Timber Sourcing

Predominately our timber comes from Nordic Countries where forestry is controlled by strict government licence. CRT continue to use sustainable raw materials, which are sourced from suppliers who invest in sustainable timber certification schemes, commonly known as Chain of Custody. This enables us to prove that the source of our timber is sustainable.


Less Waste

CRT’s environmental commitment also runs through site management. Where possible, a quantity of timber waste is used for heat and power, while wood shavings are extracted, filtered and then sold on for re-use to help minimise wastage.
