CTI hosts round table on Sustainability across Timber Supply Chain
On Friday 11 March 2016 the Confederation of Timber Industry (CTI) held its third round table on Sustainability and Quality of Standards at the Building Centre in London.
Representatives from major timber businesses, trade associations, certification schemes and timber export councils debated the issues around improving the timber supply chain's environmental impact and efficiency.
In particular the discussion focused on the CTI’s key strategic objectives on sustainability and standards: - moving towards a low carbon circular economy; - achieving consistent application of chain of custody standards; - improving the implementation and enforcement of EU timber regulation.
During the meeting Charlie Law, Managing Director at Sustainable Construction Solutions Ltd, presented the initial findings of the CTI’s Sustainability and Quality of Standards report which will be published this Spring.
Alongside other reports on Value & Growth and Skills & Education, this report will help the CTI to promote the business case for growing the use of sustainable timber at the top tables of decision-making.
