Organisation for European Quality Wood
towards a sustainable environment
      


Stichting Robinia is a knowledge and information centre that works towards a better understanding and optimal utilisation of European quality wood species. It encourages the use of European quality wood in a positive manner to leave the environment intact.


Strategies

  • Improve the exchange and knowledge between and beyond the different sectors in the 'forest-to-wood' chain
  • Encourage the establishment and management of tree species which are known to produce quality wood
  • Optimise the link between demand and supply of wood as well as to optimise the utilisation of wood
  • Encourage the use of European quality wood as durable products
  • Supply information about the possibilities of applications of wood
