In a bid to combat climate change and achieve emission reduction targets, the Australian Government set ambitious goals, legislating a 43% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and net-zero emissions by 2050. Recognising the critical role of every industry in this effort, the forestry and wood products sector emerges as a key player. Forests, integral to the global carbon cycle, function as vital carbon sinks, offsetting around 3.5% of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions between 2011-2016. Despite emitting fossil-based greenhouse gases in their processes, the sector’s positive contribution underscores its potential to assist partners in meeting legislative and industry targets.
At Forest & Wood Products Australia (FWPA), our focus is to provide the industry with essential knowledge and guidance, empowering them to actively contribute to the ongoing carbon and sustainability dialogue and identify future opportunities for growth and focus via a new three-part Carbon report series.
We have also created a complimentary social media asset library with images and short animations for your organisation to download and use in your communications and social media channels.
