This report is Phase I of the Forest Sector Net-Zero Roadmap, developed by the members of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development’s (WBCSD) Forest Solutions Group (FSG). In alignment with WBCSD’s SOS 1.5 framework,1 Phase I of the Roadmap delivers a holistic narrative of the forest sector’s contribution to climate change mitigation, with a focus on its unique role in enabling the global transition to a net-zero economy.

This report lays the groundwork for Phase II to come in 2022 by providing a shared definition of net-zero and the forest sector, as well as a commitment from FSG members to setting an ambition to reach net-zero GHG emissions (GHG) no later than 2050 upon completion of the Roadmap.
