Call for proposals: consultancy opportunity with ZSL

Proposals are invited by ZSL for a new consultancy opportunity to support the development of two reports to identify material trends and shifts in timber and pulp consumption, in order to reduce the impacts of production and trade.

The Consultant will be responsible for analysing available international export and import data for a variety of wood-based products, in order to identify international growth trends, emerging markets for timber and new uses for timber products. The Consultant will use this data to conduct scenario analyses for the timber industry and potential risks. In a related exercise, the Consultant will identify companies and traders affected by compliance, financial and reputational risk issues and prepare case studies for ZSL.

Proposals in response to the Terms of Reference available to download below must be submitted by midnight (BST) on 7th September 2020. ZSL will consider applications on a rolling basis and reserves the right to close applications if (a) suitable consultant(s) are identified before the deadline.
