The EU internal market is the forest industry’s most important market area


The EU internal market is the forest industry’s most important market area and EU regulations account for a substantial part of the regulations governing the sector’s operating conditions.

Forest industry is based on the sustainable utilisation of a renewable natural resource. The forest industry manufactures products which serve as carbon storage, are recyclable and can be utilised in energy production at the end of their lifecycle. The climate roadmap for the forest industry, published in the summer, shows that the current, significant role of the industry in slowing down climate change can be enhanced even further. At best, measures undertaken by the EU strengthen this role and accelerate the success of forest industry operations and products.
