Sustainable forests forum


Organized by WWF France in collaboration with Carrefour, the Sustainable Forests Forum was attended by a number of key stakeholders involved in forest conservation across the food industry. It served as an opportunity for 250 people representing companies, NGOs and institutions from a number of different countries to put forward solutions for protecting our forests.
