About the Program

After good initial progress, sustainable forest management in tropical regions, where good forest management practices are most urgently needed, is lagging behind. There is now a unique momentum for mainstreaming sustainable tropical timber. Both in Europe and in North America legality measures are being introduced that will have large-scale impact on the tropical timber sector. The European Sustainable Tropical Timber Coalition (European STTC) aims to increase demand for timber from sustainably managed forests to a mainstream level as key unlocking move for the tropical timber sector.
