Global GreenTag International talks at Wood You Like To Know?

Global GreenTag International is speaking at Wood You Like To Know? in Melbourne in August and we are looking forward to seeing you there!

Wood You Like To Know? gathers Australia's key timber industry experts to present and discuss hot topics within the industry, involving sustainability, design, construction and logistics.

The event will be held on 24th and 25th August – highlighting the roles of wood and timber in the building sector.

On the second day, David Baggs, CEO & Program Director of Global GreenTag International will deliver a presentation, titled: Moving from Sustainable to Full Transparency, unpacking that climate change and biodiversity loss is here and informed decisions are now more urgent than ever. What will it really take for 100 percent transparency to be a mainstream occurrence, in all business, and specifically related to the use of wood and timber in the Building sector? That is the bigger question, and issue, that this presentation unpacks.

David Baggs poses some questions and solutions, from a materials' choice perspective. He investigates where, realistically, we are now as an industry that procures wood and timber products. Are we drivers taking accountability in our manufacturing processes and or in our product selection and procurement on projects, to ensure that we are on a path of moving beyond sustainability to embrace the full meaning of transparency? How will a transparent industry look? What are the benefits?

This session explores:

- differences between sustainability and transparency,
- the supply chains that we should and should not be using for projects,
- the value of carbon rating of timber and other bio-based products and,
- how to make a stand to protect natural systems.

David is one of a stellar line up of industry speakers. Appearing also will be Jorge Chapa, Head of Transformation, Green Building Council of Australia who will be talking on: Trends & Priorities impacting the Built Environment Sector; Boris Iskra, National Code and Standards Manager, FWPA who will be presenting: Pathway to compliance with Timber; Tim Woods, Managing Director, who will be discussing: Outlook of Australian Forestry & Timber Products, David Rowlinson, Make it Wood Campaign Manager, Planet Ark who will be talking over: Biophilic Design is changing the Environment and finally to wrap up Adam Doville, The Ultimate Renewable Ambassador will be hosting a cocktail networking event.

For this event, the bundle days 1+2 is available for $99, the on-site day 2 offer is $79 and the day 2 livestream costs $39.

Wood You Like To Know? will take place in the Holmsglenn Institute for its first day and in the Sculpform Design Studio for its second day.
