Martha Stevenson, Director of Forest Strategy and Research atWorld Wildlife Fund, described tipping points that she and her team have identified for the seven major forests of the world, and related them to 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 provided a better understanding of what the forest needs, and how you can help by making better choices for growing a healthy future and business.

Content included a synopsis of GREENleaders, the industry's first certified sustainability training course. 

This webinar was intended to give participants useful information that they can begin using in their business immediately and also answered questions you may have about getting the most out of a SFC membership.
