This webinar, held on July 22, 2015, introduces the WRI & WBCSD's Sustainable Procurement Guide for Wood and Paper-based Products. Ruth Nogueron, of the World Resources Institute and Uta Jungermann, of the WBCSD, discusses how to make informed choices on forest products and how to use the guide to develop or improve your sourcing policy for paper, packaging or furniture and other products derived from forests. The Guide is designed to help you implement and deliver on critical supply chain commitments to eliminate deforestation and thereby incentivize sustainable forest management.
Our guest speaker for this webinar, Dawn Krueger, Sustainability Supply Chain Manager at 3M, also shares insights on 3M's pulp and paper sourcing policy and how 3M has used the guide to address sustainability questions.
The webinar is particularly prepared for corporate procurement managers that purchase wood and paper-based product and is intended to give participants useful information to apply in business immediately. Corporate leaders will also join the webinar to share their experiences in using the Guide.
