Ecotrust Canada, we equip communities with the tools they need to chart a prosperous future—one that offers their citizens steady long term employment while protecting the things they value most. Think clean water and air, and healthy forests.
We call this intersection of communities, values, and business the “conservation economy.”
Unlike the traditional business-as-usual approach, which doesn’t account for a wide range of societal and environmental costs, a conservation economy places social, economic, and ecological objectives on an equal footing.
In resource-rich British Columbia, that can mean enabling forestry practices that protect ecosystems and honour indigenous rights and title while ensuring steady livelihoods for generations to come.
In our newest blog, we introduce a pair of forest managers who are either using or pursuing the Forest Stewardship Council certification managed by Ecotrust Canada. FSC® is the most rigorous standard of its kind in the world.
