Future workshop and Wood Industry Summit
The future workshop is a joint project initiated as a part of the Charta for Wood 2.0. Start ups of the wood and forestry industry can present themselves on Thursday, 30th of may 2019 from 2p.m. to 5 p.m. on the innovation platform under the title "Future Workshop - Presentation of Start Ups - A project by the timber charta 2.0.", and introduce their ideas for the further development of the sector.
This new project is produced and run by the organizers of LIGNA in partnership with the German Sawmilling and Wood Industry Association (DeSH), Germany's Agency for Renewable Resources (FNR), the Ministry for Environment, Agriculture, Conservation and Consumer Protection of the German State of North Rhine-Westphalia (MULNV) and the German Forestry Council (KWF).
The Charter for Wood 2.0 is part of the "Climate Action Plan 2050" that Germany's federal government adopted in November 2016. The Charter for Wood 2.0 is in fact named in the action plan as a milestone along the road to achieving Germany's climate targets. Its primary objectives are to boost the wood and forestry contribution to climate protection through sustainable forest management and wood utilization, to maintain and grow the value added and competitiveness of the German forestry and wood industry and to conserve finite natural resources through sustainable and efficient forest and wood use.
As a new event of the Wood Industry Summit, the Future Workshop will be opened for the first time.
The Wood Industry Summit under the title "Access to Resources and Technology" is placed in Hall 26, Stand H28. Among much else, the focus of the summit will be on ways of optimizing the entire forest-wood-logistics value chain – from standing trees through to final processing in the factory – as well as on protecting forests from biotic and abiotic damage, and on climate and environmentally-friendly harvesting processes and the future of the forest and wood industry.
