ESG Financing Requirements in Tropical Forestry
Trade in forest products, such as timber and pulp, has increased over the past decade and is projected to continue doing so to meet a growing global demand. While the forestry industry is an important contributor to the activities of countless sectors, from construction to consumer goods and packaging, it contributes to unsustainable pressure on the world’s forests, particularly in tropical regions. What kind of sustainability requirements do financial institutions place on forestry sector companies to address ESG risk and how do they follow up on compliance and progress?

This webinar is part of a series presented by CFA Institute, several CFA Societies in APAC and the Zoological Society of London (ZSL), to promote a better understanding of the forestry sector’s ESG risk profile and foster quality interactions between practitioners and forestry companies on ESG issues.
