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

Sustainable Procurement of Wood and Paper-based 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)
