Celebrate FSC Friday in Latin America
26-27 September 2013
In recent years there has been a steady increase in the use of FSC certified products, both sawn wood and finished products, in the green (or sustainable) building sector. This growth was initially in major markets such as Europe and the United States, but lately Latin America has also experienced major increases.
This year, we will celebrate FSC Friday with the ‘Building and designing with FSC in Peru and Latin America’ event. The event, which will be held in Lima on 26-27th September, will demonstrate the potential uses of FSC certified timber in the green building, architecture and design sectors in Latin America. It will also highlight market trends and opportunities for Peruvian and Latin American FSC certified suppliers.
FSC International, FSC Latin America and FSC Peru are pleased to invite you to this two-day event, which will include workshops on sustainable construction and FSC participation. The event will be held at CASACOR, the world’s second largest exhibition of architecture, interior design and landscaping and the first in the Americas.
Participants will include real estate agents, construction companies, architects, designers, FSC certificate holders and non-governmental organizations, who will discuss the increasing potential of FSC in the green building sector.
The celebrations will end with FSC holding a press conference and cocktails on September 27th, where key FSC partners will make public commitments to use FSC certified timber in their construction projects.

We look forward to welcoming you!
