If you source, make, trade, or sell forest-based furniture products, and care about protecting the world’s forests, this webinar is for you.
Wood furniture supply chain sustainability and responsible procurement are critical to ensure that we all benefit from forest-based products now, while preserving the values for our future generations. This can happen if we understand our roles and start working together to raise the bar and find sustainable solutions.
Join us on 15 September, as we unveil our campaign. PEFC will welcome four incredible panellists representing four roles: youth/consumer, retailer, manufacturer and forest certification, to share perspectives, and discuss the challenges to, and opportunities for, sustainability in the furniture sector.
Our expert panellists include representatives from:
- Youth/Consumer: Ms. Alina Lehikoinen, President - International Forestry Students' Association
- Industry/Manufacturer: Mr. Nicolaas K. de Lange, Secretary-General - ASEAN Furniture Industries Council
- Furniture Retailer: Mr Christian Farat, Director of Quality-Environment - Fournier Group
- Forest Certification and Chain of Custody: Mr. Alun Watkins, Executive Director of PEFC UK, Chairman of the Furniture Industry Sustainability Programme
Michael Tatarski, a journalist who has covered forest sustainability issues extensively across Southeast Asia will moderate the panel.
Together we can help each other reach high sustainability goals. We will also be providing resources specific to the furniture sector that can help you tell, and celebrate, your own sustainability story!
The event is free to attend. Available in English and French. Live on Facebook.
