Timber has increasing appeal for architects, designers and those who specify materials for construction projects. Specifiers can now learn more about responsible timber procurement and Chain of Custody certification through our fully-accredited, one-hour Responsible Timber Sourcing CPD course.
Why You Need to Know about Responsible Timber Sourcing
Using timber from well-managed forests that meet internationally recognised standards of legality and sustainability, certified by organisations such as PEFC is a pre-requisite for environmental assessment schemes such as BREEAM, LEED and Ska, as well as many others around the world.
Green building standards, together with corporate responsible sourcing policies, are increasingly driving demand for responsibly-sourced timber. To meet these client expectations, it is important that designers and specifiers insist on certified timber for their projects, along with full Chain of Custody.
What you will learn from this CPD
• The background to forest certification and its global importance
• The UK timber market and drivers for certified timber
• Certification schemes and requirements of the UK government’s timber procurement policy
• What a model timber specification clause looks like
• How Chain of Custody certification works and the vital information you need to see
The webinar will be presented by Charlie Law, Managing Director of Sustainable Construction Solutions, who has over 30 years’ experience in the construction sector, and extensive industry knowledge having worked for BAM, Kier and Lendlease. He is also Sustainability Director at Timber Development UK, a member of the Grown in Britain Executive, and a member of the Ska Technical Committee.
A CPD certificate of attendance will be awarded to participants.
