Draft FWP industry transformation plan outlines shared objectives


The forestry and wood processing industry has started its own journey of transformation towards a high-value and resilient sector to underpin its low emissions future by releasing a draft industry transformation plan on August 19, 2022.

A productive forestry and wood processing sector will enable the construction sector to keep building New Zealand’s homes and buildings efficiently and affordably.

The Construction Sector Accord welcomed the draft industry transformation plan, and is working with the forestry and wood processing sector on shared goals, including:

• reducing carbon emissions and waste from the built environment through any products that provide environmental benefits,

• supporting Maori aspirations and driving innovation to increase productivity, and

• increasing domestic supply chains for timber products.
