  • Accoya Treated Wood
    http://www.accoya.com/sustainability/

    Accoya takes sustainably grown softwoods and transforms them with a non-toxic treatment process. The resulting wood lasts longer and changes shape much less than even the best tropical hardwoods. Wood is the only truly sustainable building material. Accoya wood gives you the best quality with verified & exceptional environmental credentials. Accoya is the only building material with Cradle to Cradle gold certification and it contributed to three LEED credits. Independent studies show window frames made from Accoya are actually carbon negative. Please review our website which is packed full of information on our production process, carbon usage and the performance of our product. You can see the independent reports and analysis that verify all our claims, the long list of environmental awards we have received and some fantastic reports on projects around the world that have used Accoya.
