Globalisation has led to increased demand for raw timber and sawmill processing capacity. More and more, the tendencies towards the internationalisation of timber markets and the resulting need for boosted output are presenting new challenges to the industry’s main industrial players.
At the same time, throughout society as a whole, consumers have become more conscious of the origin and supply of raw materials. To accompany long-standing cultural and historical influences, newer questions about bioeconomy and sustainability are coming to the fore and affecting timber producers and manufacturers of wooden products.
Principally, sustainability requirements lead to complex concerns regarding:
- Constantly changing international forestry regulations and legislation.
- The production, trade and consumption of natural resources through wood and its associated end products.
- Forestry management policy, both in Europe and in tropical regions.
- International timber markets, regulations and trade agreements, which are subject to varying negotiation and dispute.
- Global warming.
