Boreal Forest Conservation Framework

Endorsers / Signatories

Key to the success of the Boreal Forest Conservation Framework is the engagement of industries and corporations, particularly those with activities in the Boreal.

The national vision articulated in the Framework calls for the establishment of a network of large interconnected protected areas covering about half of the country's Boreal Forest and the use of leading-edge sustainable development practices in remaining areas.

Framework signatories are committed to this national vision and agree to take action in their own spheres of activity.

Endorsers are companies that share in the vision of the Framework and play an important role in raising awareness of Boreal issues.

The following companies - worth a cumulative US$30.2 billion – have endorsed the Boreal Forest Conservation Framework (Boreal Leadership Council members are designated with asterisks). For more information on becoming a Framework supporter, contact us.
