TitleGERMANTIMBER
CreatorHolzabsatzfonds
DescriptionGERMANTIMBER is the international marketing program of the non-profit organization German Timber Promotion Fund. The main goal of GERMANTIMBER is to introduce international markets to the benefits of using modern wood products and to inform and familiarize these markets about the capacity of the domestic forest and wood-based industry. Information and services are offered in the form of a website, brochures, media contributions, informational events and international cooperation. [On June 5, 2009, the German Constitutional Court (Bundesverfassungsgericht) announced its decision that the statutory funding system of the German Timber Promotion Fund (Holzabsatzfonds) is unconstitutional. In consequence, as of June 5, 2009, all activities of the German Timber Promotion Fund, including the international marketing program GERMANTIMBER, were stopped and the organization is in the process of being liquidated. The German forest and wood-based industry is currently evaluating options for creating a follow-up marketing organization based on a voluntary funding system.]
