The World Resources Institute (WRI) and World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) will hold a press briefing and question-and-answer session on the latest corporate efforts to improve purchasing procedures for products originating from the world’s environmentally sensitive forests.
Jonathan Lash, President, World Resource Institute
Bruce Cabarle, Managing Director, Global Forest Program and Interim Head of the Global Forest and Trade Network, World Wide Fund for Nature - International
James Griffiths, Director, Sustainable Forest Products Industry, Ecosystems Focus Area, World Business Council for Sustainable Development
Lars Laestadius, Senior Associate, World Resources Institute
Cassie Phillips, Vice President of Sustainable Forests and Products, Weyerhaeuser Company
David J. Refkin, Director of Sustainable Development, Time Inc.
Countless resources have been developed to help businesses procure forest-based products such as construction materials and paper. This proliferation is confusing many corporate buyers. Today, WRI and WBCSD release a toolbox - two reports, help resources, a spreadsheet tool, and a new Web site - that will help corporations protect the Earth and improve people’s lives.
