The forest industry and it's products are the solution

The forest industry, it’s products, made from renewable raw materials, and the sustainable forest management that facilitates their production, have the potential to offer significantly higher climate benefits at the global scale than at present, and foster economic growth in Europe.

The European Commission launched its massive climate policy proposals, known as the Fit for 55 -package, in the summer. The package includes numerous highly detailed regulations that affect the forest industry. Unfortunately, the legislative proposals lack, in many respects, an understanding of the economic use of forests, and the climate benefits that the forest sector produces.

It is important to ensure that the details will be specified during future preparation, in a way that takes the potential of forest industry products into consideration.
