Product trends, trademarks, and declarations webinar scheduled for 12.30pm until 1.30pm Wednesday, June 16, 2021. 

Building with certified wood is brilliant for the planet, our health, and the economy.

In addition, buying locally certified wood reduces our carbon footprint and supports local communities connected to sustainable forest management.

Join Responsible Wood as we host a special webinar with thinkstep-anz examining the evolving trends in products, trademarks, and declarations.

This webinar will provide an overview of responsible products trends in green building markets, new trademarks for Responsible Wood as well as environmental product declarations for Australian and imported timber products.
