Forests cover nearly 31 percent of our planet’s land area. From the air we breathe, to the water we drink, to the food we eat – forests sustain us. ICCA is committed to sustainably managing forests, combating desertification, halting and reversing land degradation and halting biodiversity loss.

Chemistry technologies enable wood products manufacturers to use more from every tree, helping to conserve valuable natural resources. Chemicals allow for the recycling and more resource-efficient production of paper products that requires less wood pulp

Chemical fertilizers help restore nutrients to soil lost over years of cultivation – helping to halt and reverse land and natural habitat degradation.

ICCA supports the pursuit of a more circular economy that prioritizes resource conservation and efficiency, innovations in product design that enable longer product lifespans, and reuse, recycling and recovery technologies that allow us to capture the greatest value from materials that have traditionally been discarded.
