The recent evolution of corporate responsibility practices in the forestry sector
Corporate responsibility is a constantly evolving concept that implies a necessary process of adaptation for businesses. This study investigated this evolution, and in particular, the changes in responsible practices by top forest companies over a five year period (2000 to 2005). The results of this study indicate that the global forestry sector seems to be moving towards a greater balance among environmental, social, and economic responsibilities. In general, the forest companies that were included in this study have been moving away from purely environmental issues to include economic and social issues in their corporate responsibility practices.
