TOPIC:  Better Business for a Better Earth: Sustaining our Forests and Improving Supply Chains via Credible Certifications

SPEAKER: Bruce Cabarle, Independent Consultant, Forestry and Forest Economics expert
Forest products for industrial and personal consumption are some of the most freely traded commodities in today's global marketplace. But the trade in these products have also been implicated in the increasingly historic loss of forest cover worldwide, contributing 15-20 % of the CO2 emissions attributed to the global climate change challenge.  Bruce will speak to his efforts during his 20 year tenure with the World Wildlife Fund and the Forest Stewardship Council to promote sustainable supply chains via public-private partnerships to promote environmentally, socially and economically sound solutions to this challenge.  

Mr. Cabarle is the former leader of WWF's forest and climate initiative and Global Forest & Trade Network, co-founding/chairman of the board of the Forest Stewardship Council, and now an independent consultant on issues of forest management, supply chains, governance and climate change.  He has authored and co-authored several books about global forest management.  Bruce earned his Masters at the highly regarded Yale School of Forestry and Environmental  Management.
