TriplePundit | Responsible Forestry: Moving Beyond Hugging Trees

Forests are one of the earth’s greatest gifts, providing home for a host of flora and fauna, ecosystem services like pulp and paper to create needed goods, space for recreation and relaxation, and, as the world’s lungs, a key carbon sink in the fight against global warming. Protecting this resource doesn’t mean letting it sit fallow. Protection means using forests responsibly so that they can be a truly renewable resource. In this series sponsored by Procter and Gamble, we’ll explore what it means to practice “responsible forestry” and how trailblazing companies can lead the way.

Fetzer Vineyards and Full Sail Brewing: Pioneers in Wastewater Recycling
Water is at the heart of most things we love. Just ask a vintner or a brewmeister. That delightful glass of Pinot Noir is the product of a vintner’s hard work and keen sense of terroir (the climate, environment and geographic attributes that give wine its character).

For Sustainable Business, Collaboration is the New Competition
