Statement launched during the Responsible Wood 2021 Annual General Meeting in Brisbane
The release of the statement comes at a time where the COP26 meeting in Glasgow represents a significant milestone in defining our common actions to tackle the climate crisis.
Nature-based solutions – the sustainable management and use of nature to tackle socio-environmental challenges – have a critical role to play in limiting global warming to 1.5° C above pre-industrial levels.
Responsible Wood works to protect, responsibly manage, and further enhance forests, which are probably the most well-known nature-based solution for climate change.
Our objective is to increase forests’ capacity to address societal challenges, such as climate change, effectively and adaptively, while simultaneously promoting the use of sustainably sourced wood products, which can help us to substantially accelerate the transition to low-carbon economies.
A copy of the statement is available to download here and in the resources section of the Responsible Wood website.
