Those involved typically hold senior positions within their respective industries but participate in the committee as individuals. Topics under discussion at the meeting included bio-based food packaging in sustainable development, zero deforestation initiatives and their impacts on commodity supply chains, and the role of forests and forest products in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
