Sustainable Forestry, Swedish Style, for Europe's Greening Market
Abstract:Worldwide, forestry is evolving as it reflects change in the way society values forests and forest products. Companies are reacting in a variety of ways. Stora, a large, integrated Swedish company, has implemented ecological landscape planning and begun to certify its ownership under the Forest Stewardship Council system. Actions like Stora's are important for professional foresters to follow as they provide insight into ways for improving the image of forestry and indicate how global competitive forces may develop.
