The forest industry uses natural resources efficiently and sparingly, it also minimises the environmental load of its production and recycles efficiently. The raw materials used by the forest industry are mostly local resources such as wood and water. Processes have been developed in such a way that fewer raw materials produce a greater volume of end products and environmental impact has been reduced.
