Abstract: Net zero emissions by 2050 is an ambitious target and the forest industry can strongly contribute to meeting this. However, for this to occur to its full potential the publicís perception of the industry will need to improve considerably, as will their understanding of the role of forests in regenerating natural capital and assisting regional economies transition to a net zero circular bioeconomy.
