malaysiaGBC would like to extend an invitation from the Malaysian Timber Certification Council (MTCC) for their upcoming event PEFC WEBINAR: BUILDING A BETTER FUTURE WITH CERTIFIED TIMBER.

The details announcement are as follows:

Hello & Good Day to you!

Join our PEFC Webinar: Building a better future with certified timber to learn how timber construction supports climate mitigation and other global sustainability targets, and the important role that PEFC certification plays. The webinar is free to attend and takes place on 16 December at 11:00-12:00 CET (6:00 PM – 7:00 PM Malaysia Time).

We will be joined by three experts in the field of sustainable construction and strong advocates of timber as a building material:

  • Mark Wayne Probert from Binderholz will take us through the manufacturing journey, from sustainably managed forests to innovative mass engineered timber (MET) technology.
  • Paul Jarquin, President, and founder of REI Habitat, the first property developer in France to become PEFC certified, will focus on the situation and opportunities in France. With the French government mandating that all new public buildings will be built from at least 50% timber or other natural materials, France is leading the world.
  • Finally, Mark Thomson, architect, and Director of Eco-Effective Solutions will focus on why architects should be specifying certified timber. He’ll explain the inherent properties of timber in building, from their role in climate change mitigation to their aesthetics.

Why should you attend?

This webinar will provide you with a solid background on the sustainability wins for timber construction. You’ll come away with a better understanding of the social, environmental, and economic benefits of designing and building with certified timber.

Our expert speakers will share with you a range of innovative projects, illustrating the numerous and varied advantages that building with certified timber brings.

Finally, the webinar will demonstrate why sourcing and building with certified timber is so critical, and how PEFC certification provides assurances of responsible sourcing.


Who should attend?

While everyone is welcome, the webinar will be of particular interest to those working in the construction sector – whether you are already using timber, or are interested in finding out more about the sustainability advantages of timber construction.

From architects, specifiers, and developers, to structural engineers, contractors, housebuilders, and the timber supply chain, join us to learn how together we can build a better future with responsibly-sourced timber.
