Get a Better View of Your Supply Chain
The Forests in Focus platform helps brands meet their sustainable sourcing goals by providing new insights into the timberlands that provide their US-based virgin wood and fiber. Family forest owners supply ~50% of the wood that flows into US supply chains, yet less than 1% of family forest owned timberland is certified 1,2. Forests in Focus was created to address this challenge, helping members gain a deeper understanding of the sustainability dimensions in the regions where they source.
