The #GreenSource initiative is a European-wide effort to explain how the forest-fibre industries make the 2050 climate neutrality target a reality.

#GreenSource priorities are:

  • Communicating about the wider ecosystem and inter-relatedness of all forest-based industries highlighting the links between the products and businesses that use wood as their raw material.
  • Emphasizing sustainable forestry as the lifeline of our industry.
