Australian Local Government Association joins international move to encourage the use of wood in the built environment

At the 2015 National Assembly of Local Government in late June, the Australian Local Government Association (ALGA) passed a resolution that supported the use and promotion of timber products by Local Government across Australia, using a policy similar to the Wood Encouragement Policy developed by Latrobe City Council. This action both recognises the value of the timber industry to the Australian economy and the contribution that using more responsibly sourced wood and wood products can make to reduce our carbon footprint.
