Mar 09, 2015. /Lesprom Network/. Sveaskog’s CEO Per-Olof Wedin has been elected as the new Chairman of EUSTAFOR, replacing Georg Erlacher from Österreichische Bundesforste AG, European State Forest Association said in the press release received by Lesprom Network. 

EUSTAFOR is a key platform from which to pursue, at a European level, issues relating to forests and their sustainable management. Forests are a renewable resource and have an important role to play, particularly in the transformation towards a green bio-based economy,” says Per-Olof Wedin.

“Views about forests and forest management differ widely between the countries of the EU. But what EUSTAFOR’s members have in common is that they practice sustainable forest management which develops the multiple values of their forests such as biodiversity, recreation, renewable raw material as well as jobs and prosperity. As a Swedish representative in the role of President of EUSTAFOR I will particularly focus on the significance of forests for Europe’s climate, innovation and employment objectives,” says Per-Olof Wedin.

The appointment of Per-Olof Wedin as President of EUSTAFOR and of the ExCom is for two years.

EUSTAFOR is the association for European state-owned forest management organizations, who manage almost one-third of all forests in Europe, corresponding to around 30 million hectares.
