PEFC Stakeholder Dialogue 16-17 October 2017
2017 PEFC Stakeholder Dialogue will take place on the 16th and 17th November in Helsinki, Finland.
Under the theme “Making Certification SMART” the PEFC Certification Week and stakeholder dialogue 2017 will explore and discover new and emerging technologies which show promise for supporting forest certification. It will bring together forest sector stakeholders and leading technology providers & innovators to exchange views on what’s needed, what’s working and where are the opportunities for scaling up application.
Whether it is hardware, software, services or tools, the incorporation of technology within forest certification can overcome many barriers. Wide ranging applications provide solutions for everyday challenges such as: improving transparency in complex supply chains, enhancing the ability to map, monitor or manage forest resources, or establishing new ways to engage stakeholders & improve cooperation. The backdrop of Finland and the PEFC Forest Certification Week provides a ripe moment to exchange experiences and challenge each other to re-imagine how forest certification should re-equip for the next decade.
The two-day stakeholder dialogue event will combine one day in conference setting with a one day field trip to enable optimal exchange, demonstration and in-depth discussion on the topic. We will kick off the event with a cocktail reception at 6:30pm on the 15th. The event is well-positioned to equip participants with new insights and ideas for implementing and maximizing the benefits derived from forest certification!
