Environmental Leadership

A TRUSTED LEADER IN ENVIRONMENTAL CREDENTIALS

Canada’s forest products industry has the best environmental reputation in the world according to a Leger survey of international customers completed in 2014. By embracing strong environmental standards and helping to build a green economy, Canada has become known as a trusted source of legal and sustainable forest products. But the industry is not standing still.

  • All harvested trees are regenerated — we are a renewable resource
  • Canada has virtually zero deforestation — just 0.2% a year
