Swiss Timber Industry Federation
Holzwerkstoffe Schweiz is mainly representing the trade of sawnwood and wood-based panels.
The affiliated membership in total realizes turnover of about € 1.2 billion per year.
Although Switzerland is not part of the European Union, the national economy is more and more affected by EU regulations. So today one of the main aims of Holzwerkstoffe Schweiz is to keep its members informed about possible impacts of these regulations, as well as developing solutions for any issues that arise, in contact with the Swiss government.
Holzwerkstoff Schweiz is also promoting the trade with legal and sustainable wood. Half of its members are FSC or PEFC certified.
