EU GPP case study: Sustainable wood procurement in Cognac, France
In 2005, the city of Cognac decided to replace its obsolete street furniture with wooden furniture. Analysis of the product revealed that the furniture was made from Moabi - a rare and endangered wood species, often smuggled from the Congo and Cameroon. Since then, the City of Cognac requires compliance with certain eco-label criteria when purchasing products that are derived or contain wood.
