Episode 65:Joining forces from forest to ocean - Tropical timber in the Yachting Industry
In this episode we focus on how we through collaboration and innovation can improve the way entire industries source. More specifically we are going to look at how we through joint effort are trying to make the sourcing in the yachting industry more sustainable.
Timber has been used on the oceans for hundreds of years. But there is a challenge: The species used most often are technically superior but comes with a high social and ecological price. We must find new sustainable solutions. This will require innovation, collaboration, and new partnerships.
In the episode I am joined by Olaf van Tunen from Van Stijn Rijnwoude, Friso Kuperus from Pure Vision, Tijmen Hennekes from FSC Netherlands and Gao Ya from FSC International. The episode was sponsored by Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation (https://www.fpa2.org)
