Peter Wilson FICFor

With 34 years’ UK and international experience, my strengths lie in developing strong strategic visions, innovative problem-solving, influencing public policy, implementing institutional change, building multi-stakeholder partnerships and in leading and publicly representing organisations.

Initially, I worked to support commercial reforestation projects in Jamaica and the Solomon Islands, then returned to the UK to pursue my interest in working at a strategic level to influence public policy. I took a leadership role for 16 years with the Timber Growers Association and Forest Industries Development Council and was influential in repositioning the UK forest industries sector.

I have been prominent in developing and managing forest certification initiatives – I led the UKWAS partnership through three standard revisions, supported the development of the UK’s Woodland Carbon Code and led the development of the new global Sustainable Biomass Program certification scheme for woody biomass.

I undertake specialist consultancy projects on an individual and bespoke basis.
