Giving voice to FLEGT licensing’s wider values

Jul 23, 2018 | FLEGT Policy News

The FLEGT licensed information point is expanding its information for timber buyers. Recent IMM trade consultations revealed that the trade advantages of FLEGT licensed timber are relatively well-known. However, the private sector is keen to learn more about, and articulate to their clients, the social, economic and environmental benefits of FLEGT licensed timber. 

The FLEGT licence information point now provides more information about FLEGT licensed timber’s social, economic and environmental credentials. 

This includes detailed explanations along with illustrations, leaflets and brochures with brief messages that companies can use. 

The EU FLEGT Facility, which hosts the FLEGT licence information point, welcomes feedback and suggestions from the private sector on their or their clients’ information needs regarding FLEGT licensed timber. You can contact the FLEGT Facility at info@euflegt.efi.int
