How We Are Financed
GreenBeams is a not-for-profit company aimed at offsetting carbon and helping the environment by supplying chunky timber beams. Because of this, the initial finance for this project has mainly come through sponsorship and funding.
- Sponsorship has come from Structural & Civil Consultants Ltd, a team of structural engineers who have set up the company.
- A grant from The North York Moors National Park Authority.
- A grant from Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
- A grant was received from the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority's Sustainable Development Fund, which is managed by the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust.
These grants have helped to set up the website and also to provide initial loans to sawmills for storing hardwood timber.
