The Timber Packaging & Pallet Confederation (TIMCON) presented the economic and environmental advantages of the timber industry to an assembly of MSPs at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh on December 2nd. The event was hosted by Jim Hume, the MSP for the South of Scotland, and highlighted the role the wooden pallets and packaging industry has in sustaining the Scottish timber and sawmilling sectors and the wider Scottish economy, as well as in reducing carbon dioxide emissions.

Mr Hume said: "As an employer of more than 8000 people directly and 30,000 indirectly, the timber pallets and packaging industry contributes significantly to our economy. And, as the sustainable forests from which they are produced store carbon as they grow, they are also highly beneficial for our environment."
