The packaging sector is driven by new demand strategies and guidelines launched by retailers and branded companies. Around one third of globally harvested timber is used for the pulp and paper production. Approximately 20% of all FSC-certified companies are actively engaged in the packaging sector. That means an enormous potential for an increase of FSC-certifications worldwide. German and international players have implemented relevant procurement policies focusing on FSC-certified or recycled material. But even more relevant is to generate an increasing demand volume on the timber markets for packaging from responsible sources! FSC Germany, in corporation with FSC International, likes to organize a one-day conference for both: to stimulate the market and to bring together relevant actors for discussions for building expertise.
Our event agenda is still under development! We are currently working to confirm key speakers and seminar contents. If you have any specific interests do not hesitate to tell us. We also welcome offers of you to become key speaker.
