Grown in Britain: The Movie
What, why & how they do what they do…
Here’s a great little film from partners Grown in Britain whom we’re very proud to support.
CEO Dougal Driver gives a very clear of what Grown in Britain are all about.
Most recently the GIB team have completed a chain of custody verification that means everyone that gets licensed becomes part of a UK timber supply chain so our homegrown timber can be verified as legal and sustainable.
This means large retailers, the construction industry, local authorities & government procurement policies can all now specify homegrown timber for their projects. That means well managed forests and woodlands who take u the license will find a sustainable market for their thinnings, and felled trees.
This is a big deal!
