Taking Action for the Boreal Forest; A Look Back

Video | December 6, 2012

For more than seven years, the Greenpeace forest campaign has sought to stop the on-going destruction of Canada's Boreal forest and woodland caribou habitat. On top of directly engaging destructive forest companies with boycotts and actions, Greenpeace published several reports detailing destructive on-the-ground forest practices, and their impacts, the link between climate change and Boreal Forest destruction and the connections between global forest products, logging companies, and customers. Today, Greenpeace along with the companies of the Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) and 8 other leading environmental organizations, unveils an unprecedented accord - the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement covering more than 72 million hectares of public forests, an area twice the size of Germany.
