We are proud to claim that our Industry uses the World’s only multi purpose 100% renewable resource.  It is, we believe, therefore, unique.
It is naturally sustainable, recyclable and Bio-degradable.  Managed properly, we feel justified in claiming it to be The Most Environmentally responsible building material available today.
All building materials increasingly have to demonstrate their environmental credentials.  Through EATTA we can demonstrate our belief that timber is “Green by Nature’s Design”.
EATTA is a member of The Timber Trade Federation.  In turn Forests Forever is the environmental voice of the TTF.  Forests Forever aims to present the environmental case for timber products, promote sustainable improvements in the overall environmental performance of the industry, encourage responsible forest practices and provide education and information to all.
EATTA Members, guests and web site visitors should be aware of important recent and forthcoming important legislation and changers covering and affecting our Industry directly.
