55 EFI Technical Reports on sustainability impact assessment

EFORWOOD’s main aim was to develop a tool for sustainability impact assessment of forestry-wood chains (FWC) at various scales of geographic area and time perspectives. An FWC consists of a number of interconnected processes – from forest regeneration to the end-of-life recycling of wood-based products – which are determined by economic, ecological, technical, political and social factors.

The computerised decision-support tool (ToSIA) which was developed by EFORWOOD analyses the sustainability impacts of existing and future FWCs, helping decision-makers in politics, government departments and industry to make sound and reliable decisions on forestry and forest product manufacturing and consumption.

The reports are available to download as pdfs.
