Forest Industry Alliance Alberta

As the newest committee of ACR, this group works on issues that are key to the sustainable development of Alberta’s forest. This includes examining common approaches to environmental challenges, how the industry accesses and manages forest resources, examining the competitiveness of the industry, identifying barriers to investment and innovation, identifying opportunities to increase the value from our forests, including green energy and products, as well as advancing the forest products industry as a hi-tech, long-term employer.
