Willmott Dixon welcomed the introduction of the EU Timber Regulation in 2013 and its purpose to halt the trade of illegal timber into the EU.

To minimise the risk of illegal timber from entering our supply chain, and our projects Willmott Dixon only accepts legal and sustainable timber certified to either FSC or PEFC.

Willmott Dixon does not directly purchase timber from outside of the EU. We are therefore classified under the regulation as a trader, and are required to keep records (order documentation, invoices and delivery tickets) for five years.

Our Sustainable Procurement Policy requires all suppliers of timber and timber products to be able to evidence full compliance with obligations of the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) if required.

Willmott Dixon are also signed up to the WWF campaign which seeks to cut out the trade in illegal and unsustainable timber, by working together with business to influence government at UK and EU level in order to level the playing field for businesses that are supportive of responsible forest trade.
