The Canadian Wood Council (CWC) says in a news release that it supports the Forest Products Association of Canada’s (FPAC) May 2nd launch of the ‘30 by 30’ climate change challenge – a commitment to help Canada remove 30 megatonnes (MT) of CO2 by the year 2030.

“The ‘30 by 30’ challenge is a great example of the wood products industry taking a leadership role in the area of reduced environmental impacts,” says CWC president Michael Giroux. “Renewable wood products from sustainably managed forests in Canada are allowing construction sector stakeholders to balance functionality and cost objectives with reduced environmental impacts on the built environment.”

FPAC is currently working on a detailed roadmap to illustrate how it intends to meet the climate change challenge – anticipating that key successes will be reached through active forest management practices that maximize carbon storage in forests and spur growth of trees, increasing the use of innovative forest products and clean technologies to displace fossil fuel emissions, and by increased efficiencies at mill sites.
