About us:

“Danish Timber Trade Federation has a long tradition of representing the interests of the leading wood importing companies in Denmark. In fact, the federation dates back to 1893.
Our member companies today operate globally and import softwood, hardwood and panel products from all origins around the world.
Timber is our members' business and livelihood and, with them, we have a commercial interest in ensuring the long-term future of world's forests through sustainable management.  Underlining our commitment in this area, our members follow a Code of Conduct undertaking to source only legal and preferably sustainable timber.

As an organisation and industry, we believe that wood has a great story to tell in the modern marketplace. Wood is the world's most environmentally friendly raw material. And a cornerstone in a bio-based economy.

By also acting as secretariat for the Danish Wood Initiative – www.trae.dk –  we aim to get that message across to the wider public, working every day to raise awareness of timber's potential and to grow its use.

Our membership of the European Timber Trade Federation is of great importance to us. ETTF plays an important role in ensuring a level playing field across EU member states for timber businesses and also raise the level of awareness of the EU Timber Regulation, in the fight against illegal logging. And being part of a greater, well-founded international network is crucial in a time of increasing globalisation.
Working together we can ensure wood is the material that will build the fossil free future.”
