Raise awareness of architects on the use of legal and certified timber
Over the past 15 years, the supply of tropical timber has been multiplied by 10; 100 million hectares are currently FSC certified in over 78 countries. As for temperate timber, nearly 230 million hectares were PEFC certified in 2009. Consumers, however, remain unaware of certification issues. Because the choice of timber is guided and defined primarily by architects, it is essential to involve them in the certification process.
