Forest products are renewable goods that store carbon and have in most cases a lower environmental footprint than non-wood products. Well-managed forests provide numerous ecosystem services and societal benefits. The production of forest products can, however, cause significant negative side effects if not conducted in a legal and sustainable basis.
The World Resources Institute (wri.org) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (wbcsd.org) have partnered to provide reliable, impartial and easy-to-understand information to assist sustainability officers and business procurement managers, especially major purchasers of wood and paper-based products, in their purchasing decisions.
The full guide, which includes 10 key questions that companies should ask when purchasing forest products, is at SustainableForestProds.org.
