As a leading manufacturer of wood panels, Norbord is campaigning against the legislation that promotes the burning of virgin wood and instead suggests that timber in the UK should go through an appropriate hierarchy of use before it is burnt in order to generate electricity.

In the latest targeted campaign, each member of Parliament will receive a small package in the post – inside will be a piece of wood, a short letter, ‘The Hierarchy of Wood Use’ manifesto, and a return slip.

The letter will invite each recipient to return the wood sample to Norbord with the promise that it will be recycled and reused for the good of the environment. Alternatively, they can simply dispose of it – thus preventing any future good use favour of the landfill.

The campaign is explained in Norbord’s website,
