Chloé provides advisory services to a global portfolio of clients in the timber sector and beyond to support them in sourcing legal and responsible wood sources. This includes delivering risk assessment and mitigation activities, to meet the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) and sustainability criteria
Protecting forests and the climate is a crucial challenge that requires common and coordinated efforts. I particularly enjoy encouraging change through enhancing capacity, understanding and commitment within the international timber trade sector.
