March 11, 2003

(Vancouver, BC) – Environmental groups are pointing to a consulting firm’s report that use of so-called “green” forest products is on the upswing as evidence their years of lobbying have paid off. The report, based on discussions with 30 major customers, concludes there has been a move toward purchasing environmentally friendly B.C. wood products. The conclusions were contained in the report, A Greenward Shift in the Market for Forest Products from British Columbia, prepared by IBM Business Consulting Services.
