We can build a
climate smart future
where forests and forest products deliver their maximum
benefits to climate, biodiversity, and prosperity.
To solve the converging crises of today, we must transform forests, cities, and the relationship between them.
Today, crises in forests and cities
are treated as two separate issues.
Forests are a lifeline to ecological health and the well-being of communities worldwide – but their ability to continue providing these benefits is eroding.
Growing populations, rapid urbanization, and poverty levels are contributing to a rise in deforestation and forest degradation.
The world’s urban population will double by 2050, necessitating the construction of an urban environment the size of Paris every week from now until 2050.
The built environment produces 40% of CO2 emissions, making this a climate emergency.
The solution to both crises is one holistic system:
a Climate Smart Forest Economy.
Sustainably managed forests
We partner with multi-stakeholder communities to understand the broader challenges and opportunities in climate-smart forestry. Our transformative work includes the initiatives below.
To build this system effectively, we:
Ensure our work is carbon positive - Using a 3S Framework to maximize the carbon in the value chain
Ensure our work is climate smart - using Safeguards to minimize unintended climate, ecological and social harm
Connect and scale learnings - constructing Value Chain Alliances of actors across the value chain
