Dear <<First Name>>,
Welcome to our January 2020 newsletter. The start of a new decade. I have little doubt it will be a very significant one in the story of Welsh forestry and zero-carbon housing - two clear and obvious solutions to the climate emergency. One example of this is the Clwyd Alyn housing project, where we are starting to get very exciting results
The Home-Grown Homes Project is gathering momentum. See below for a full report of activities. We have commissioned industry leading consultants to develop industry guidance on embodied carbon assessment
and building performance techniques
. Their purpose is to support the adoption of measurement and monitoring techniques in social housing. We will be running small stakeholder workshops in May. Spaces are very limited, but if you’d like to take part please email me.
Our Welsh Timber Reserve
project is now complete. The final report is imminent, but the highlight is that we are now exploring forestry projects with a number of housing associations and local authorities.
Which all supports our desire, not just to see forest expansion but to increase the number of organisations with an economic interest in Welsh forestry.
will be in Cardiff on the 18th June so please save the date. Once again we are appreciative of the support from Welsh Government.
