Sustainable Timber Action (STA)

STA assisted European public authorities in making sure the wood/timber products they buy are produced and traded in a sustainable and fair way.

The project has produced the STA Toolkit which includes a guide for public authorities on how to procure sustainable timber products.

The project has ended in November 2013 with a final conference. Its efforts to increase the share of sustainable timber on the European market are continued in the European Sustainable Timber Coalition
