Sustainable Responsible Forest Management
As we welcome a new year and unveil our latest TigerPLY™ catalog, I reflect on our remarkable journey amidst global challenges such as the pandemic and geopolitical shifts. Our resilience and adaptability during these times are a testament to our collective strength.
In today’s complexities of global trade, the issue of climate change is gaining increased awareness and more frequent headlines. The evermore pronounced impacts of shifting weather patterns, underpinned by emerging scientific evidence that calls for our attention.
Climate change poses a multifaceted challenge to our business and customers. To address this, we have engaged in extensive research and collaborated with eco-conscious institutions, including Harvard Innovation Labs, and the Salata Institute for Climate and Sustainability to deepen our understanding of climate change, greenhouse gases, and the carbon cycles contributing to global warming. This knowledge is critical as we strive to optimize our environmental footprint on a global scale.
At Shelter Forest International, we are committed to leading the charge in Sustainable Responsible Forest Management. This approach is not just a strategy but a necessity to drive substantial change in our industry.
Forests play a crucial role, accounting for 30% of the world's biological carbon uptake. By adhering to sustainable and responsible forest management practices, we set new industry benchmarks and actively contribute to a greener future.
Our sustainable forestry practices, such as rotational harvests, are designed to maximize carbon storage. This ensures the carbon embedded in our wood products, like plywood, remains sequestered for extended periods, significantly reducing carbon emissions.
Harnessing the power of our natural resources through innovative and sustainable strategies is essential. Our renewed mission is to establish a harmonious balance with nature, paving the way for a resilient, thriving, and sustainable world.
Your partnership is invaluable in this endeavor. Together, we can make a meaningful difference by producing high-quality wood products that enhance our homes and offices and play a vital role in extending the carbon cycle. Through our joint efforts, we can offer natural solutions that contribute significantly to balancing the environmental ecosystem we all share.
Thank you for your unwavering support and commitment to sustainability. Together, we strive towards a better, more sustainable future.
