Our mission is to speak as a single voice for the whole of the Timber Industry Supply Chain. We shall campaign to improve the business landscape to grow the use of timber and develop a vibrant and increasingly prosperous industry.

The CTI Mission Statement


The Confederation of Timber Industries is an umbrella organisation, representing the UK's Timber supply chain from Forest to end of life recycling.

CTI represents Producers, Manufacturers and Distributors of Timber across all the supply chain.

Our membership includes large Multinational Companies as well as key Trade Associations, NGOs and Research Institutes.

Timber contributes substantially to the UK Construction, Manufacturing and Service Industries, providing jobs across the skills spectrum and adding value of ca. £20bn to the UK economy.

Our industries represent the only sustainable supply chain on the planet that embodies and constructs with carbon.

Building with Carbon and growing our low carbon economy is the future.

Concrete and Steel defined the first Industrial Revolution. Responsibly sourced Timber will come to define the second.
