Over 30 speakers from across the globe will share their views on how we can bring together the economy and the environment.
New advances in technology mean that everything that can be made out of oil can be made from renewable, biological resources. There are huge environmental and business opportunities for a wide range of industries: construction, chemicals, textiles, energy, plastics.
The bioeconomy gives us a unique opportunity for building a sustainable future. Our speakers will focus on what investment steps we need to take to make it happen.

A forum for forest and wood industry professionals
A greater demand for energy, volatility in the fossil fuel markets and increasing material resource scarcity are considered as the most significant sustainability megaforces shaping European and global wood industry markets over next 15 years. Together with unstable consumer demand, uncertain policies and indifference among regulators, forest and wood industry have never experienced such significant barriers to advancing sustainability and profitability.
The goal of the International Forest Business Conference 2018 is to focus on megatrends that shape forest and wood industry sectors, highlight transformation of forest related businesses towards a low-carbon bioeconomy, discuss tensions between sustainability and cost competitiveness, and call attention to new green innovations.
