Forest Innovation Summit

Stay Tuned for The Forest Innovation Summit 2024​​​​​

Initiating a Global Dialogue: A Transatlantic Exchange of Forestry Innovations
​​​​​​​Our goal is to stimulate a dialogue between major forestry sectors across the Atlantic, encouraging the exchange of both new and existing innovations through the lenses of environmental, social, and political perspectives.

A Pioneering Forest Summit

For two years, the Forest Innovation Summit has served as a conduit to bring together the most forward-thinking innovators from across the Atlantic. The Summit gathers leaders from some of the world's most influential forestry and technology hubs and promises a hub of knowledge, expertise, and innovation.

The Forest Innovation Summit stimulates a dialogue that holds the potential to shape the future course of global forestry. By creating this platform, we invite the cross-pollination of ideas and practices, fostering international collaboration to pursue sustainable and innovative forestry practices.

The Forest Innovation Summit 2023

This year, the second edition of the Forest Innovation Summit took place on November 16th-17th at the Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center, in San Francisco.

In total, we had 48 speakers and 120 attendees, and the two-day conference consisted of speaker presentations, panel discussions, startup pitches, and networking.

The focus areas were:
  • Forestry Models & Policies (as well as ESG regulation and reporting),
  • Wood Utilization & Bioenergy
  • Fire Mitigation & Technology Solutions
  • Forest & Biomass
  • Mass Timber
  • Land Management & Sustainability
Once again the Forest Innovation Summit was a success, and it facilitated the exchange of both new and existing innovations through the lenses of environmental, social, and political perspectives. We are very much looking forward to a third Summit in 2024. Stay tuned!

Addressing Global Challenges: Tackling the Annual Wildfires and Forestry Risks

Forests worldwide face numerous risks, including the recurring threat of extensive bush and wildfires. Certain regions' dry and windy climates render them particularly vulnerable, leading to escalating concerns among local residents, policymakers, and international observers. In response to these risks and the many more surrounding forestry globally, this summit was conceived.

​​​​​​​It stands as a proactive approach to the universal challenges faced by forestry sectors across the world. By facilitating dialogue around these issues, we hope to spark innovative solutions and collaborative strategies to tackle these pressing concerns.
