With the growth in demand and trade of forest products, the fragile forest resources continue to remain at risk. GFTN-India aims to raise awareness and promote environmentally responsible production, consumption, trade and procurement policies and practices in forest goods and services while fostering a socio-cultural environment that demands mainstreaming of sustainable forestry into business practices. GFTN-India reflects WWF-India’s commitment towards sustainable forest management and minimizing forest footprint.
The GFTN is WWF’s initiative to eliminate illegal logging and improve the management of valuable and threatened forests. By facilitating trade links between companies committed to achieving and supporting responsible forestry, the GFTN creates market conditions that help conserve the world’s forests while providing economic and social benefits for the businesses and people that depend on them.
