Climate – Values – Resources: Wood matters! Policy initiatives for sustainable use of wood in Europe as part of the BMEL event series “Charter for Wood 2.0 in Dialogue”, Berlin, 10 June 2021

Major endeavours can only succeed when working in concert. Two of the largest challenges that affect all of us are climate change and the economic transition towards a “Green Economy”.

Wood as the most important renewable resource can play a vital role in implementing policy programmes, from the Federal Government’s 2030 Climate Action Programme to the European Commission’s Green Deal. Wood from sustainable forestry is a key factor in protecting the climate, conserving finite resources and adding value, in particular in rural regions – its areas of application include sustainable construction and renovation, the Green Economy, the circular economy, and as an energy source.

What are the opportunities and the limits of wood as a resource? How do other EU Member States strengthen the sustainable use of wood? What can we learn from each other? These are the questions we want to address jointly at this event.

The event on 10 June 2021 and the excursion on 11 June 2021 will be part of the BMEL event series “Charter for Wood 2.0 in Dialogue”. Registration is open for participants from industry, associations, public administration, science and civil society.
