WWF Global Forest and Trade Network UK
What is the WWF GFTN-UK?
The mission of WWF's Global Forest and Trade Network-UK (GFTN-UK) is to improve the management of the world's production forests by using the purchasing power and influence of UK businesses.
The GFTN-UK was founded in 1991, originally called the WWF 1995 Group, and has 28 participating companies.
Its founding members' vision was to ensure their timber and paper supplies came from well managed forests, and did not contribute to forest destruction and illegal logging practices.
Since its launch, GFTN-UK has become widely recognised as a successful partnership between WWF and business – a partnership that promotes and progresses responsible management of the world’s forests.
