WEBINAR | Forests, Plantations, Wood Products & Australia’s Carbon Balance

Date: Wednesday 15 November
Time: 1:00pm – 2:00pm (AEDT)
RFP CPD points: 1.0


The sustainable forest products industry in Australia can help reduce society’s energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. In this webinar Dr Ximenes will discuss the information contained in a recently released Carbon Guide for FWPA. The Guide has been developed to indicate the extent to which plantations and other commercial forests, as well as the wood products produced from those forests, contribute to Australia’s carbon balance. It describes key concepts and provides the latest facts and figures on the carbon balance in production forests and forest products in Australia. It also identifies opportunities to improve that contribution.
