Royal Plywood offers a range of presentations that focus on educating the audience on the topics that are at the front of our industry. Green building knowledge presentations include rating systems and product choices. We offer answers about environmentally friendly programs such as FSC (Forest Stewardship Council). We cover how chain of custody ensures the use of sustainable forestry, starting at the level of the forest all the way through to the end user. These one hour presentations are given to the A&D community, contractors, sub-contractors, furniture manufactures, custom cabinet shops, organizations and interest groups. If you are interested please contact your Salesmen or Architectural Consultant.
