Canadian Sustainable Manufacturing Program

NCASI’s Canadian Sustainable Manufacturing Program is focused on research oriented towards addressing the sustainability- and climate change-related priorities of forest harvesting and forest products manufacture in Canada. Individual research projects are designed in consultation with NCASI’s Canadian Environment Task Group and address information needs associated with climate change & carbon; life cycle assessment; energy management; water sustainability; recycling & land use; beneficial use of residuals; and sustainability metrics and benchmarking. Given the global context of the topics of research in this area, NCASI’s Canadian Sustainable Manufacturing Program is linked with that in the U.S. Please consult NCASI’s Sustainable Manufacturing Program area of the website for more information and resources on this binational area of NCASI research.
