Our commitments

Over the last decades, we have managed our forests with multifunctional objectives to meet society’s numerous and changing demands. Continued improvement is needed, and we are eager to evolve, innovate, and adapt. Sustainable forest management is a dynamic concept, ever-evolving with our knowledge and understanding of forests. In this context, these are our commitments.

Continuing to optimise sustainable forest management.

Forest owners are best placed to understand the complexity of forests and choose management priorities;

Contributing to mitigating and adapting to climate change.

Through our forest management decisions and practices, forests should reach a balance between long-term carbon sink, storage (in forests and products), and substitution as well as adaptation and resilience to climate change;

Strengthening cooperation with the scientific community.

The aim is to make management decisions fit to answer the multiple expectations and needs of society;

Enhancing cooperation with the whole value chain.

Ensure that future wood-made solutions fit forests’ future capabilities;

Mobilising more forest owners to manage their forests.

A well-managed forest plays a central role in climate change adaptation, biodiversity conservation, and many other ecosystem services, as well as improving resilience towards forest fires, storms, pests and diseases;

Improving communication towards the public.

Explain the reality and complexity of forest management, including the difference between various management practices and how these are not competing but complementary;

Fostering links

Between young and old, rural and urban, and between different socio-economic classes.
