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 CPD course.
The CPD is provided free of charge. All we ask is that hosts provide a venue with a display screen or projector and a minimum number of 6 participants.
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 client expectations, it is therefore important that designers and specifiers insist on certified timber for their projects, along with full Chain of Custody.
