Founded in May 2010, JCH Industrial Ecology Limited is an environmental consultancy situated in North Wales. Our primary focus is the development of eco-friendly products sourced from sustainable and renewable resources. With a strong emphasis on researching environmentally responsible materials for the construction industry, we specialise in creating Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs), Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), and carbon footprint assessments. Additionally, we offer training materials and conduct in-house courses.

Understanding what we do...



Callum Hill, the company director, has developed a collection of lightboard lectures focusing on timber technology and sustainability. These presentations are accessible on the  Aalto University Wood Science YouTube Channel and serve as an excellent entry point into the field of environmental science through an interactive learning approach, suitable for learners at various education levels.
