The STA-EU project
Background:
The project is an initiative resulting from the collaboration between three main
partners involved interested in sustainable and fair timber procurement:
• ICLEI - Local GOVERNMENTS FOR SUSTAINABILITY (EU)
• Fundación COPADE - Comercio Para el Desarrollo (SPA)
• FSC Italy
and from the experience of two
awareness raising campaigns
promoted by:
The main goal
To raise awareness among EU public authorities on link
between sustainable public procurement (SPP) and
development problems of people living in and depending
from forests.
How?
Promotion of Sustainable forest management and Fair Trade
community certified forest products in public procurement

 The importance of the public sector in the timber sector
Group exercise (10 mins)
• who already supplies products for the public sector directly
or indirectly?
•Which products?
•What is the business share?
Why public authorities & forests products?

Market opportunity: In the EU there are about
200 000 PAs which purchase 19% of the
timber and paper sold in Europe

Drivers for good practices: PAs can give
good example to the private sector and
consumers [drivers]

PAs can mobilize greater support for actions
against forest related poverty and sustainable
forest management (e.g. financing development
cooperation projects in forestry sector: FSC, Carbon, Fair
Trade).
 The importance of the public sector in the timber sector
• In Denmark, the total market for wood, wood products, furniture and paper
was estimated at USD 4.5 bill. In 2004 of which nine per cent is consumed by
the public sector (FAO, 2006)
• In France, the public sector market for wood used in the construction could
roughly be in the range of EUR 3-5 bill. Tropical timber used in many
construction and civil works uses (CIRAD, 2004).
• In Belgium the market share of public procurement in forest based products
is estimated at 18% (van Orshoven, pers. comm.). (FAO, 2006)

government purchasing of
tropical timber is in the
range of 5-20% :
