Canadian Wood also participated in a conference as panellist, a parallel event at the three-day trade fair, which included a panel discussion on the topic of ‘EcoCraft: Creating Sustainable Furniture’.  One of the panel speakers at the discussion also featured Dr Jimmy Thomas, Assistant Director, Technical Services of Canadian Wood. He contributed with valuable insights and perspectives, emphasising Canadian Woods' commitment to sustainable practices in the timber industry. He highlighted that for the past 40 years, Canada has been recognized as a leading source country for implementing top sustainability practices. 


In Canada, policies are not only well-implemented but also ensure that all resources are certified and adhere to sustainability practices from start to finish. The materials are sourced responsibly, with 55% of the wood used in the country being softwood, known for its sustainability and the emphasis is placed on promoting Canadian wood and the overarching concept of sustainability. The focus is on value and the promotion of overall sustainability, utilizing wood from natural forests. This wood is highly matured, with a minimum age of 120 years, ensuring its stability. Additionally, a variety of wood species are available, suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. He concluded the panel mentioning that this approach underscores Canada's commitment to responsible resource management and environmental stewardship.



Canadian Wood was at the centre of all activities at the exhibition, which gave them an opportunity to engage with industry professionals, showcase their innovative timber solutions, and contribute to the discourse on sustainable timber construction at INDEXPLUs 2024.
