Timber firm offer tree incentive to Eco delegates

A leading timber merchant will plant a tree for every person to register their details with them at a national exhibition.

Arnold Laver Timber World is showcasing its environmental accolades at the annual Ecobuild 2008 conference at Earls Court, London on February 26-28.

The national company is making the tree planting gesture as a sign of their eco-friendly approach in the timber industry.

All of Arnold Laver's Timber World Branches are accredited by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) and BM TRADA Forest Products (CSA, MTCC and SFI).

The accolades provide their customers with the confidence that the majority of Arnold Laver’s timber and wood-based products are from legal, well-managed forests.

Now in its fifth year, Ecobuild 2008 is expected to attract more than 20,000 visitors with the latest products and services in the sustainable design and construction industry on show.

Arnold Laver Timber World will also be highlighting its new innovation, the Danback product at the exhibition.

Danback is a flexible wood backing system which supports cabinets, shelves, hand-rails, wall mounted sinks and counters, while reducing installation time by an estimated 90 per cent.

David Oldfield, Arnold Laver’s Group Joinery Manager, said: “The Ecobuild exhibition is a fantastic opportunity for Arnold Laver to further highlight our commitment to protecting the environment.

“It also provides the company with a real opportunity to shout about their latest business developments and products to a massive audience from within the industry. The Danback is our latest product which is making great waves in the trade.”

Ecobuild will see more than 500 exhibitors, 500 expert speakers and 100 individual conference and seminars at the event.

Key issues will involve zero carbon, water management, renewable services, natural materials and urban design. There will be addresses from well-known names such as Janet Street-Porter, Kirtsy Lang and Wayne Hemmingway – a fashion designer turned architect who is producing more affordable housing.

Ecobuild 2008 takes place at the same time as two other dedicated conference events including Cityscape and Futurebuild, which explores the future innovations in the construction industry.

Arnold Laver Timber World will be located at stand E346 at Earls Court and for more information visit www.ecobuild.co.uk.
