-- Canadian Wood remains a crown agency of the British Columbia government. It recently conducted a webinar on "Sustainable Forestry, Certifications, and Climate Change." The Canadian webinar remains a testament to Canadian Wood's ongoing efforts to disseminate information about sustainable forests, climate change, & their impacts on the wood industry. It also promotes the usage of softwood to all stakeholders.
Sustainable forestry is a tried-and-true method of preserving and improving forest ecosystems' long-term health. Also, healthy ecosystems benefit all living things. British Columbia (B.C.) is a global pioneer in sustainable forest management. Also, it remains reputed for satisfying the present and future generations' environmental, social, and economic needs.Canadian Wood Webinar
The webinar also revealed that India remains a huge consumer of forestry products. But the majority of the country's forests remain protected and no longer provide a stable source of high-quality wood. As a result, India will have to rely on certified wood imports to meet rising consumer demand. Environmentally conscious consumers require that businesses show a high level of concern for the environment when creating products. As a result, it remained critical to ensure that wood products remain sourced from a resource that remains both sustainably managed and lawfully exploited.
Forests help to lower CO2 levels in the atmosphere, which helps to mitigate the detrimental effects of climate change. The webinar addressed the importance of maintaining healthy forests in order to reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions. The conversation went on to address how sustainable forest management is one of the most essential strategies for reducing climate change and global warming because it absorbs approximately a quarter of carbon emissions. Every year, BC forests receive plantation of over 200 million seedlings. Thus, these remain quickly reforested with a variety of native tree species.
The panel further talked about forest certification programs that are developed nationally and regionally in countries around the world include the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), and Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI). Savvy consumers in India and the world demand that companies demonstrate high levels of concern for the environment while producing products. Hence, while buying wood from sustainably managed sources, consumers look for the PEFC, FSC, and SFI certification labels to assure their compliance with environmental standards.
