Creating Sustainable Timber Markets in Amsterdam

The Sustainable Timber Action project in cooperation with IDH and ProBos is presenting the first large scale European event for sustainable timber procurement on 6 November in Amsterdam (Netherlands). Every year, thousands of hectares of tropical forest are being destroyed. European public authorities play a large role in reversing this trend. The power of sustainable timber procurement as well as Europe’s role in the sustainable use of tropical forests will be central themes of the event: ‘Creating sustainable timber markets - Launching the EU Sustainable Tropical Timber Coalition’.

The conference will mark the launch of the EU Sustainable Tropical Timber Coalition (EU STTC) as well as the presentation of the outcomes of the Sustainable Timber Action project. The event will also feature the annual Sustainable Procurement Seminar of the Procura+ Campaign.

The event addresses local, regional and national government representatives as well as private sector organisations. It is free of charge. Coverage of travel costs may be possible. For more information, contact procurement@iclei.org.
