Message from our President & CEO
Interfor has grown significantly in the last year, and in line with the evolution of our Company we are also elevating our expectations around sustainability. We are proud to present our 2022 Sustainability Report as it demonstrates these higher ambitions, including the new targets we have set for ourselves, and the steps we are taking to contribute to more sustainable communities and a better world.
While sustainability has always been central to what we do, in 2022 we developed our first company-wide Sustainability Strategy, anchored on world-leading practices and meaningful targets. This has included the appointment of our first Vice President responsible for sustainability as well as providing clear executive leadership and accountability for driving performance throughout the Company.
Interfor’s company-wide approach to sustainability is based on a broad appreciation for what it takes for our Company —and our society—to deliver on the needs of today without compromising our future. In practice, as one of North America’s leading lumber producers, that means continuing to produce sustainable, renewable, and carbon-friendly building products, including the vital work to limit carbon emissions and ensure our forest resources thrive for generations. Sustainability also means constantly improving our safety performance and investing in our workforce, and our communities, to ensure we are being as responsible to our human resources as we are to our natural resources.
Ultimately, our contributions to sustainability are about Interfor’s corporate purpose, which is to embrace world-leading sustainability practices to advance renewable forest products as part of the climate solution. Our Interfor team made great strides this year, and we intend to deliver on the ambitious new targets we have set for the future.
