As global leaders representing government, business and the environment meet in Vancouver this week, Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) has launched an important report entitled; Climate Change Mitigation in Canada’s Forest Products Sector: Roadmap Toward Net-Zero. Developed in partnership with sustainability experts at Delphi, the report provides an actionable roadmap to help seize the benefits of, decarbonization pathways and the use of carbon-storing wood products, as well as climate-smart forestry in the face of worsening natural disturbances including drought, pest outbreaks, and wildland fire. The findings highlight that with the rapid adoption of new technologies, appropriate investments and new policies, Canada’s forest products sector could contribute between 18-46 million tonnes CO2e in emission reductions annually (relative to current emissions) by 2050. Climate-smart forestry practices will also increase the resilience of Canada’s forests and help mitigate the impacts of worsening natural disturbances, including increasingly frequent and devastating wildfires.
