Advisory Committee on Sustainable Forest-based Industries

The Advisory Committee on Sustainable Forest-based Industries (ACSFI)* is a FAO statutory body composed of senior executives from the private industry sector worldwide. It meets yearly with the main objective of providing guidance on activities and programme of work of the FAO Forestry Department on issues relevant to the paper and forest products industry, in support of member countries efforts to progress towards sustainable development.

* Formerly known as the Advisory Committee on Paper and Wood Products (ACPWP), the FAO Council endorsed a proposal to broaden the mandate of the Committee to include the sustainable production and consumption of forest industry products, an expansion of membership and change of name to the Advisory Committee on Sustainable Forest-based Industries as from 1 January 2013. Full details of the statute changes can be found here (on page 19).
