The Forest Products Association of Canada presents a digital report that includes intuitive scroll-down function, playable videos, and content menus for easy navigation on mobile and desktop devices. Derek Nighbor, FPAC president and CEO introduces the report saying, “As I look back on the past year, I am impressed by the growing awareness of forestry in Canada and around the world as it relates to its ability to address urgent environmental, social, and economic challenges. …as we stare down a likely recession in 2023, more needs to be done to enable the potential of our sector and its people. While we have seen notable progress in the federal government’s recognition of how forestry can help power a green post-pandemic recovery, elements of the federal approach to sector decarbonization and regulation still have room for improvement. We need the Canadian government to move quickly with its own response to support forestry workers and communities and improve our sector’s competitiveness position in North America and around the world. Part of this response must include a sector-specific approach to accelerating innovation and decarbonization and smarter regulation. It also must consider unique decarbonization solutions for our mills in more rural and remote areas where there is limited (if any) access to lower-carbon fuels.”
