The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) cordially invites you to attend the FSC Forum on 25th March 2015 at the DOMOTEX Asia/CHINAFLOOR Trade Show in Shanghai, China.

Sustainability has become a key topic in the wood and timber sector in recent years. An increasing number of retailers and brand owners have started to require their suppliers to provide wood products from responsible sources. Many public procurement policies make certification a prerequisite for selecting suppliers of construction materials. The US Lacey Act and the EU Timber Law outlaw illegal wood and wood products from their marketplaces. Through this forum we will share the market development and trend for FSC-certified wood, and introduce how FSC certification can help fulfilling “due diligence requirements”of the European Union Timber Regulation (EUTR). Representatives of leading forest farms and companies will provide their perspectives on certified wood products and market. Meanwhile, the forum will introduce the newly-established Shanghai Luojing Timber Free Trade Zone and its benefits to timber traders worldwide. A site tour will be organized by the Shanghai Timber Trading Center (STTC) in the afternoon.
