Ask any business sector what the basic principles of supply chain management are – and the answer invariably comes down to affordable and reliable transportation services. Unfortunately for Canada’s forest products sector, the present system is neither affordable nor reliable.
Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) is pleased to lend its support to the Global Network for Forestry Young Professionals (ForYP) – a new global community for young forest sector professionals to network, develop professional skills, and become empowered to engage and lead the future forestry.
Forests are intrinsic to Canadian life. We know that with the great power of Canada’s forest resources, comes an even greater duty for sustainable management and responsibility. While we may follow Russia and Brazil as the third-largest forested country in the world – Canada has an important competitive edge that puts us above all others.
Earlier today, the wood industry’s COP26 International Partners Advisory Body launched its wood manifesto entitled “Growing our Low Carbon Future: Time for Timber”. Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) has been a leading partner in this collaborative global effort to profile the key role timber and wood use in construction can play in our move to a net-zero carbon economy.
