Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement

A historic agreement signifying a new era of joint leadership in Canada’s boreal forest

21 members of the Forest Products Association of Canada and 9 environmental organizations

Issue Area: Forest Conservation, Wildlife Protection, Climate Change, Corporate Social Responsibility
Where They Work: Canada

We chose them for:

    • achieving an incredibly significant framework to help establish the world’s largest forest conservation deal that covers an area larger than Texas, comprising more than 72 million hectares (178 million acres) of majestic wilderness from British Columbia to Newfoundland. The agreement, when fully implemented, will conserve significant areas of forest, protect threatened woodland caribou and provide a competitive market edge for participating companies.
    • helping protect Canada’s Boreal Forest, a global environmental treasure which holds almost a third of the world’s freshwater, stores more carbon than anywhere else in the world after the ocean and  contains about a third of North America’s songbirds that migrate there to breed.
    • showing the world how forest companies and environmental organizations can work together to secure a more sustainably managed boreal forest and more competitive industry while setting forestry standards that will be the envy of the world.
