Pellets + Our Planet

Communities + People

Wood pellets play a key role in helping communities create robust, sustainable economies while addressing the challenges of balancing economic development with conservation and community values.    

By maximizing the value of every tree harvested, Canadian wood pellet manufacturers are supporting the sustainable use of our forest resources as well as maximizing jobs and opportunities in communities across the country.

We are committed to respecting communities by recognizing the importance of their long-term stability, which depends upon the ongoing ability to support businesses, employees, families, and the sustainability of our forests.

With its dependence on sustainable biomass, the wood pellet sector offers meaningful opportunities for Indigenous communities to participate in the green economy, supporting important values such as stewardship and sustainability.

Increasing our economic ties with Indigenous partners supports reconciliation across Canada and creates opportunities for Indigenous peoples to fully participate and lead in our industry.

By putting the future in the hands of the people who live in communities and regions across Canada, we are building strong communities together.
