Timber & Wood Products
The 21st century is ushering in an indisputable shift toward green. Many businesses large and small, across disciplines, spanning the globe, are reconfiguring their mode of operation to meet the prospect of emerging green (ecosystem) markets. Carbon credit trading is an emerging ecosystem market from which some forest landowners may profit. This market could become sizeable if federal or state governments intervene to set mandatory targets for carbon dioxide (CO2) reduction. It could also become less significant as industries change to be more successful in lowering their carbon emissions.
