Abodo Winner at Green Ribbon Awards 2014

New Zealand natural wood specialist Abodo Wood has scooped up the Green Economy Award at this year’s Green Ribbon Awards.

Technical Director Ben Campbell was on hand to receive the award, and give the audience a run down on Abodo’s focus – to create healthy wood products, safe for people and the environment.

Abodo’s range of preservative free, locally grown cladding products were noted as influential in a drive towards sustainable, cradle to cradle building materials. Of particular note was Abodo’s Vulcan and Tundra timber weatherboards, both of which are locally grown, FSC® certified and free from chemical preservatives.

“It is fantastic to receive some recognition for the healthy wood products in our range, but we feel more work is required to reduce New Zealand’s dependence on imported wood species of dubious sustainability. In addition, we feel the more education is required for New Zealander’s on wood preservatives and their effect on people and the environment” stated Daniel Gudsell, a Director at Abodo.

The Green Ribbon Awards, held by the Ministry for the Environment recognise the outstanding contributions made by individuals, organisations, businesses and communities to protecting and enhancing New Zealand’s environment.

Past Green Ribbon Award winners include Villa Maria Estate, West Coast Blue Penguin Trust, Yealands and Resene Paints.

Abodo Wood is one of the first wood product companies to be recognised under the Green Ribbon Award.
