ASBP Sessions:


Sustainably-managed timber supply chains

08 May 2024 16:45 – 17:30 The Timber Stage


Poorly-managed forestry can cause greater environmental impact than any benefit from building with wood so the origins of timber and the stewardship of forests are critical to sustainable development. How can the industry be certain that material used in construction is from well-managed sources?

The world’s largest certification program, PEFC are planning to broaden the remit of the scheme to include carbon and biodiversity impacts in addition to existing metrics. The IMPACTT project to map timber supply chains is underway exploring ways to bring greater transparency and granular detail to the mass timber supply chain with the intention to provide specifiers with the certainty they need.


Edward Sneddon, Director – Simten  (Chair)
Dr. Asselia Katenbayeva, Research Associate – ASBP
John Kirkby, Executive Director – PEFC

Socio-economic impacts of regenerative construction

09 May 2024 11:30 – 12:15 The Nature Stage


Regenerative construction is an approach to planning, design and construction that aims to create sustainable, resilient, and thriving communities. It goes beyond traditional sustainable development, beyond recycling and reuse, by focusing on restoring and replenishing ecosystems, enhancing social well-being, and fostering economic vitality. Success in regenerative construction is reliant on the value chain working together.

This session will focus on the findings of a novel digital project completed by Morgan Sindall Construction and their partners to re-consider how a secondary school that they completed in 2021 could be re-imagined as a regenerative asset. The project specifically identified the socio-economic impacts arising from renewable processes and products. What are the implications for supply chain, communities, government and individuals?

Simon Corbey, CEO – ASBP (Chair)
Gary Newman, Chief Executive – Woodknowledge Wales
Orla Whelan, Customer Solutions & Portfolio Development Director – Saint-Gobain UK & Ireland
Liz Allen, Partner – The Connectives
Timothy Clement, Head of Carbon & Environment – Morgan Sindall
