Ligna was formed in 2005. After some years working as a forester and trainer with experience in India and South Africa and in production forestry in the UK, Mike Greenland, the MD, decided the time was right to set up Ligna as specialist business to business consultancy, with a focus on sustainability and transparency in the timber and forest products industries.

Since Ligna began, we have worked with companies of all shapes, sizes and specialities in the industry, developing, implementing and auditing around forest management and chain of custody systems.

During this time, we have also developed links with timber and systems professionals who have timber, paper and forest products experience in the UK, Indonesia, Malaysia, Spain, Portugal, the US, Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Czech Republic, Chile and West, South and East Africa.

As best practice and policy agendas have changed, Ligna has adapted and we are now developing new specialisms in Due Diligence, CE Marking and carbon management systems, providing increasing sophistication to our existing business clients and attracting new business along the way.
