Sustainability Metrics & Benchmarking

Social issues continue to influence public perception of corporate environmental responsibility. Valuing and monetizing nature as a balancing point to industrial development will accelerate, and concepts such as natural capital are likely to increasingly influence policy development. NCASI’s objective in this focus area is to aid in the design and characterize objective, credible sustainability-oriented metrics for the forest sector. NCASI’s work can be used in characterizing a company’s products and their value chain, while assisting the industry and its associations in responding to false claims made about the sector’s environmental profile.
