GLRPPR Sector Resource: Sustainable Procurement of Wood and Paper-based Products

Title:
Sustainable Procurement of Wood and Paper-based Products

Abstract:
Forest products are renewable goods that store carbon and have in most cases a lower environmental footprint than non-wood products. Well-managed forests provide numerous ecosystem services and societal benefits. The production of forest products can, however, cause significant negative side effects if not conducted in a legal and sustainable basis. (pdf document; 156 pp)
