14 - 19 May 2007: GFTN International Meeting at Construmat 2007 in Barcelona, Spain
WWF will facilitate an international seminar between responsible timber and wood producers and consumers at the International Construction Show Construmat 2007 in Barcelona.
The seminar and the business round tables aim to encourage participants with responsibilities related to public and private wood and paper purchases to strengthen the growing trend of certified forest products.WWF believes that celebrating this event at Construmat 2007 will mean a big step towards more responsible consumption in the Spanish construction industry and a good opportunity to those wood products suppliers committed to the conservation of our planet’s forests.
- Facilitate market links between responsible producers (FSC certified, GFTN members) and responsible buyers interested in the Spanish market and construction companies, importers and manufacturers in Spain.
- Raise the commitment of Public Administration to certified forests products (like FSC certification).
- Promote Responsible Purchasing to Spanish companies and public authorities.
Who should be there:
People and companies interested in obtaining FSC certified wood and paper from responsible suppliers around the world as well as all FSC suppliers interested in the Spanish construction market.This include purchase officers and CSR Directors in wood manufacturers, construction companies and Real Estate development firms as well as architects and others professionals who work on developing terms or reference for the purchase of wood and paper products in private or public sector.
