VANCOUVER, BC — Environmental group ForestEthics is proposing an ambitious new conservation agenda and new green business model for the Canadian forest industry, one the organization says is necessary to combat global warming and species loss. The proposal is outlined in a new report, A Brighter Shade of Green, which was released on the eve of the Forest Leadership Conference in Vancouver, in early May.
“Canada is one of the few countries left in the world that still has enough intact forests left to truly ensure sustainability,” says Tzeporah Berman of ForestEthics. “Protecting Canada’s intact forests an international obligation – is an essential element of a national strategy for re-balancing the carbon budget and for helping our ecosystems adapt to the global warming that is already underway.”
