Sample text

Until then only 25 cities and communities had agreed to such a waiver, among them Gottingen, Hannover, Kassel, Munster, Wuppertal and parts of Berlin. By 1994 the UBA (ibid) had counted roughly 3000 communities and many units of public administration who had made such decisions. 35 A similarly comprehensive distribution analysis for the 1990s was not possible for lack of data. Additionally, the data from Muller had to be supplemented with own calculations because they were not specifically related to tropical timber.

With relatively few companies processing tropical timber, the only possibility which might have provided a starting point was the German veneer industry. However, following this end was superfluous because at the same time a Dutch institute commissioned by the lITO carried out, among other tasks, a survey in the German veneer industry. 36 As with its predecessor in 35 36 The data from MANTEUSCHNEIDER (1967) and KRAFf (1975) are considered in the meantime obsolete. Independently of this it appears to be appropriate, as the authors found in the course of the study, to exercise moderation or to bundle data requests made to the industry.

For invisible uses, where the utilization of tropical timber is only partially or not at all evident for the end consumer, certified tropical timber will first of all recover former markets on which tropical timber has technical advantages which could compensate for possible price disadvantages. In the long run tropical timber will assert itself in other utilization fields too, because advertising with the certificate is possible and the use of uncertified tropical timber entails the danger of loss of image (in this respect, see the remarks made at the end of Chapter 2).
