Responsible Investment in the Forest Sector

Thank you to the organizers for the opportunity to speak to you today. I was asked to talk about investing in a sustainable forestry sector, and I suppose that the topic is timely and important because we have a forestry sector that is struggling and not making a lot of money right now. We are going through a restructuring of the MIS sector, the recent receivership of Gunns, a continuing withdrawal of governments from forestry, and very tough market conditions all at once. Things are fairly fluid, and I hope today to give some thoughts on where the forestry sector is heading and what forces are driving these changes as we move to a new era of greater institutional ownership.
