Object & Deliverables
Forest sustainability and stewardship are two key commitments of the forest industry in Alberta and AFPA members. These commitments are spelled out and implemented by various means including operating and development plans, detailed management plans and operating ground rules. However, other resource users such as the energy sector, have an impact on the forest land base. Historically, the forest and energy sectors have worked side by side in the forest but with little integration. Both sectors have their own and unique business policies and practices. However, as both sectors increase their presence on the land base, it is becoming increasingly obvious that the cumulative impacts must be taken into consideration.
This project summarizes all activities related to managing the industrial footprint and integration with the energy sector in one booklet.
