If my memory serves me right, I have been carrying out assessments for AGF since 2010! Since then, I’ve graduated from a BSc in Geography and Environmental Management and an MSc in Sustainable Tropical Forestry. I specialise in social forestry, and how social and institutional aspects can contribute to Sustainable Forest Management.
I worked for a forest certification organisation for four years and am a Chain of Custody auditor for the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification), as well as experienced in carrying out Due Diligence checks for timber imports for compliance with the EU Timber Regulation.
I’m currently (2021) in the early stages of starting my own consultancy company, providing advice, solutions and auditing services in forest product value chains and hope to add more areas to my areas of expertise as time goes on. Learning about, and working with ways to improve out natural environment will never cease to stimulate me!
