Make Wood Work

Make Wood Work is a national campaign aimed at securing the long-term future of wood panel manufacturing in the UK.

The future competitiveness of the industry is under threat - due to distortion of an already fragile wood supply and demand balance in the UK, caused by subsidies available to the energy generators under the Government's Renewables Obligation. 
Radio 4 programme investigates the implications of the Renewables Obligation
