Forests are where timber comes from, and when we lose forests around the world to deforestation, whether from illegal logging or conversion of land for agriculture, this undermines the future of the industry. With no forests, there is no future for the industry.
All our members, both under our Responsible Purchasing Policy, and both UK and EU law, must only trade in sustainably sourced timber. By growing the market for sustainable timber, we can help ensure our forests stay standing. This includes in the tropical world, where forests are most threatened.
In this module you will learn about FLEGT, which stands for Forest Law Enforcement, Governance, and Trade, which is a global effort by the UK and EU’s efforts to expand sustainable practices.
Once you have completed all sections of the module and successfully assessed your knowledge, you will be able to print your CPD certificate.
