Responsible Forestry

Moving Beyond Hugging Trees

Forests are one of the earth’s greatest gifts, providing home for a host of flora and fauna, ecosystem services like pulp and paper to create needed goods, space for recreation and relaxation, and, as the world’s lungs, a key carbon sink in the fight against global warming. Protecting this resource doesn’t mean letting it sit fallow. Protection means using forests responsibly so that they can be a truly renewable resource. In this series sponsored by Procter and Gamble, we’ll explore what it means to practice “responsible forestry” and how trailblazing companies can lead the way.
