Timber Beacon shortlisted for COP26

Commissioned by CEI-Bois, architects dRMM have designed a reusable timber pavilion for COP26 for the UN climate change talks to be held in Glasgow, Scotland, UK in November 2021.

'Timber Beacon' is dRMM's response to the collective brief of a unique global timber industry collaboration. The 25+ strong alliance of innovators in engineered mass timber and wood-based products, global forest growth and development, are led CEI-Bois, the European Confederation of Woodworking Industries and the UK Timber Trade Federation.

"As world leaders discuss our global responsibilities and collective response to climate change during COP26, our message for the future will be powerfully three dimensional: in wood there is hope," said dRMM founding director, Prof Alex de Rijke.

Sponsorship is being sought to realise the full potential of this project. To find out more, contact paul.brannen@cei-bois.org. This initiative is supported by UK Aid, under the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office's FGMC programme (Forest Governance, Markets and Climate) and the Structural Timber Association.

The 'Timber Beacon' has been shortlisted by the British Government to be located at the COP26 Glasgow site for the duration of the talks.

Paul Brannen, director of public affairs at CEI-Bois, said "The global timber and global forest sectors see COP26 as the unmissable opportunity for policy makers to put into action what we already know about nature-based solutions; global forests and wood products are essential to averting catastrophic climate change, and increasing the use of timber products is an easy way to help decarbonise construction, renovation, and the wider built environment. Wood both stores carbon and substitutes for carbon intensive alternatives. We are also focused on globally recognised good governance as the key to growing forests around the world."
