The Danish Wood Initiative

'Træ Er Miljø' - or 'Wood Creates Environment' in translation - is the joint information project of the wood industry as described on the home page of the organization www.trae.dk.

GTS is among others ambassador for "Træ Er Miljø" meaning that we support this project. The purpose is to inform the consumer about the many possible applications of wood so more and more consumers will choose products made of wood.
