We’re Doing Our Part For Our Forests And Our Families
Canadian forest companies are driven each day to provide products that Canadians can be proud of - knowing that they are sustainable, environmentally-friendly, and most importantly, are making a difference in the fight against climate change.Learn More
We’re fostering sustainable, more resilient communities through the circular economy.
Our forests, and the sustainably sourced products they provide, are among the most powerful tools in our toolbox when it comes to reaching our country’s climate targets. Not only does the sustainable management of our forests ensure they retain their carbon capture potential but emerging industries turning wood chips, sawdust, and bark into bioplastics, textiles, and biofuels will create good green jobs for Canadians and are poised to reimagine the resources and products we use everyday through a greener, cleaner lens.
Building tall with wood moves the carbon-capture potential of our forests into our cities.
By continuing to modernize the National Building Code to support Tall Wood Building projects, we can transform and expand the sustainable construction of affordable housing units, seniors’ residences and schools and our communities as a whole. Mass timber construction can be completed 25% faster, can reduce carbon pollution during construction by 25% to 45%, and requires less energy to heat and cool, allowing us to build greener, more resilient communities.
Canada leads the world in the third-party forest certification.
Canada is a recognized global leader when it comes to sustainably managing our forests and the ecosystems, wildlife, and communities that depend on them. Not only do our members harvest less than 1 per cent of areas designated for harvesting annually — ensuring we keep our forests as forests forever — but FPAC member companies must have third-party sustainable forest management certification – which includes commitments to reforestation, promoting wildlife habitats, biodiversity, and water protection.
