The crisis in Ukraine has had an impact on the supply of natural gas in Europe resulting in hikes in energy prices. We introduced measures to turn down our energy consumption which will have the benefit of both reducing cost increases and limiting our carbon footprint.

Tamdown launched a tree-planting campaign ‘Roots for Foundations’ in January 2022 as part of an initiative run by the Future Forest Company which aims to establish a new forest on the Isle of Mull by 2025. Tamdown has committed to sponsor the planting of a tree for every foundation that the business completes. The total number of trees planted through Tamdown’s sponsorship had reached 1432 by the end of FY22.
