FPAC, the Forest Products Association of Canada has launched the FPAC Sustainability Initiative, a program that affirms the sustainability commitment of the organization’s members. The undertaking also provides a mechanism to report the industry’s progress on a range of environmental, economic and social indicators.

“FPAC members are making a statement: They are proud of their improving record pursuing sustainability in every aspect of our business,” said John Weaver, chairman of the FPAC sustainability committee, and president and CEO of Abitibi-Consolidated. “In 2005, FPAC’s board of directors approved the FPAC Sustainability Initiative formalizing our commitment to further sustainability improvements, and expanding our accountability to all Canadians. As a result, FPAC members will now publicly benchmark and report on their performance every two years against a range of environmental, social and economic indicators that are litmus tests for sustainable development and global competitiveness. We’re not going to make it easy on ourselves. We welcome the challenge.”
