Martha Stevenson, Director of Forest Strategy and Research atWorld Wildlife Fund, will describe the tipping points that she and her team have identified for the seven major forests of the world, and relate those tipping points to  the furnishings industry.

The world's forests are in trouble and we and the furnishings industry can help.

Since furniture designers are always hungry for special woods, and since making it into good quality furniture adds the highest value to the wood, whether it is a rare wood or a common wood, our industry has a large responsibility for halting deforestation.

This webinar will provide a better understanding of what the forest needs, helping you make better choices for growing a healthy future as well as your immediate business. 

Content also includes a synopsis of GREENleaders, the industry's first certified sustainability training course. This webinar is intended to give participants useful information that they can begin using in their business immediately. And will answer any questions you may have about getting the most out of SFC membership.
