Södra shortlisted for two more awards
Södra Wood Ltd has been shortlisted in two categories in this year's Timber Trades Journal (TTJ) Awards: ‘Environmental Achievement’ and ‘Excellence in Marketing’. This recent achievement adds to an already hugely successful year, with Södra Wood having already grabbed headlines for winning Builders Merchant’s Journal’s (BMJ) ‘Best Timber Brand’ award.
Both TTJ and BMJ are prominent trade publications read by over 30,000 people across the UK every month.
Södra’s ‘Environmental Achievement’ entry referenced its 100 per cent fossil-free nurseries, commitment to increased forest growth, new sustainable products, renewable electricity generation, and 2020 target for completely fossil-free production. All of which is underpinned by Södra’s passionate promotion of sustainable development at all stages of its timber production, from seed to customer.
The ‘Excellence in Marketing’ entry explored Södra’s willingness to tell a compelling story about timber’s potential to transform the UK’s housebuilding industry while meeting all-important carbon emissions targets. In doing so, Södra’s timber production process was brought to life, its commitment to the UK market well-ingrained and the Södra brand established in the UK as the benchmark for quality timber supply in the UK.
Jeremy English, Södra Wood Ltd’s GB and Ireland Sales Director, Manufacturing, commented: “It’s always satisfying to receive acknowledgement for the great work Södra Wood does. The ‘Environmental Achievement’ shortlist is recognition of our unerring commitment to sustaining our forests and creating a better future for everyone. ‘Excellence in Marketing’ shows just what a good job we’re doing of getting that message out there and promoting the benefits of a more sustainable future built with timber.”
Nigel Buckley-Ryan, UK Sales Director, Merchants, at Södra Wood Ltd continued: “We’re extremely proud that we’ve been shortlisted for two awards! We’ve been working very hard for the past three years to firmly establish the Södra brand in the UK and translate what Södra stands for: a dependable supply of some of the world’s highest quality and most sustainable timber. This recognition is proof that these objectives are being met.”
