The principles recognize forests as a natural climate solution and provide a common framework for engaging stakeholders in discussions about climate solutions. “We are signing on because we believe the need to address climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time and all businesses have a responsibility to look for solutions. Our role is to understand the science pertaining to the role of forests, forest management, and forest products in mitigating climate change, then to participate in the design of regulations and market based solutions that will enable our businesses to contribute meaningfully to climate solutions.” – Jim Hourdequin, CEO, The Lyme Timber Company.
