The European forest-based value chain issues position on forest management and sustainable investments
In the context of the European Commission’s work on developing a classification system for sustainable investments, CEPI and the European organisations representing the European forest-based bioeconomy value chain have issued a joint statement on the role of forest management in the proposed taxonomy regulation.

The co-signing organizations are the European State Forest Association (EUSTAFOR), the Confederation of European Forest Owners (CEPF) The Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI), the European Farmers and European Agri-Cooperatives (COPA COGECA), the European Confederation of Woodworking Industries (CEI-Bois), the European Organisation of the Sawmill Industry (EOS) and Bioenergy Europe.
