Ethical wood sourcing at Olympic Park recognised

As the world counts down to the opening of the London 2012 Olympic Games, news comes that the Soil Association Woodmark and Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) have achieved certification for ethical wood sourcing at 19 separate sites across the park.

Beck Woodrow, Woodmark Project Manager, explained: “Managing the certification process for such an iconic site was a positive and fulfilling experience. It’s great to know that after The Games take place these buildings and all the supporting infrastructure will be enjoyed and appreciated by Olympic Park visitors and the local community for years to come.”

Working to the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification, the ODA and Soil Association Woodmark have sourced a wide array of wood products from European construction timber to tropical hardwoods. Hopkins’ Velodrome and Zaha Hadid’s Aquatics Centre are just two of the projects which boast ethically-sourced wood.
