Tools & Guides
This booklet provides an overview of key legality issues in the global wood trade that businesses should consider when purchasing wood and paper-based products.
The Sustainable Procurement Guide and resources were developed to assist sustainability officers and business procurement managers, especially major purchasers of wood and paper-based products lacking “in-house” forest and forestry expertise.
The Risk Tool provides country- and species-focused information to help buyers and importers understand the legal context of the products they buy. The tool helps save time and money in the process of conducting due care and due diligence.
Helpful contacts are experts in issues related to the harvesting, manufacturing, transporting, selling, buying, and tracking of legal wood and wood products. They come from a wide variety of industries, service providers, consultancies, nonprofit organizations, academic insitutions, and government bodies.
