Business Description

An international vertically-integrated forestry management, timber processing and renewable energy business

Active Energy Group Plc (AIM: AEG.L) is a London Stock Exchange-listed firm, operating internationally across the entire timber supply chain - from forest to factory and fuel.

Our vertically-integrated business units provide timberland development services for forestry owners, industrial wood fibre for MDF manufacturers, and second-generation Biomass coal replacement fuels for industrial power generators.

Headquartered in the United Kingdom, we’re a fast-expanding business that has experienced exceptional growth - as well as diversification into complementary industry sectors - since the current executive team assumed responsibility for the company and developed an innovative forward-looking strategy in mid-2012.

From our original business in Ukraine, which has grown to be the largest exporter of processed wood products in the country, we now operate in Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States of America, providing products and services to international blue-chip customers across a range of industries - from timberland owners to MDF manufacturing firms and power generation utilities.

Our three operating divisions, which operate independently under the direction of expert management personnel, work together to optimise resources and opportunities, to maximise efficiencies and ROI, and to deliver lasting value to all stakeholders:

AEG TimberLands: Forestry Asset Management and Development
AEG WoodFibre: Industrial Wood Fibre for Medium-Density Fibreboard (MDF) Manufacturing
AEG CoalSwitch: Advanced Biomass Coal Replacement Fuels and Fuel Processing Systems

Respect for the environment - through careful stewardship of natural resources, optimisation of manufacturing and logistics operations, and investment in innovative carbon-neutral technologies - is core to our overall business strategy.
