Wood Window Alliance

Description

The Wood Window Alliance is a group of 18 of the UK's top names in wood windows and doors. Members make many different sorts of windows and doors, but all have to meet strict quality, performance and sustainability criteria, including Chain of Custody certification.

According to Heriot-Watt University, every WWA specification wood window you choose instead of a PVC-U window, saves 160kgs of CO2 (that's over one and a half tonnes of CO2 for a house with ten windows).
