EUSTAFOR – Strong Voice for Sustainability and Use of Forest Resources
EUSTAFOR is recognized as a strong and well-coordinated voice of European state forest management organizations at EU and pan-European level.
EUSTAFOR member organizations provide valuable, professional and experience-based knowledge about the sustainable and multifunctional management of state-owned forests in order to support the European forestry-relevant policy objectives.
EUSTAFOR serves as a common platform for its members to share experiences and to learn from each other. As a forum for European state forest management organizations, EUSTAFOR advocates the positive results of the management of state forests as a contribution to society, particularly in terms of achieving European sustainability strategies.
EUSTAFOR promotes the active use of forest resources, which enables the provision of a wide array of renewable raw materials and related ecosystem services as a relevant basis for the bio-based economy.
The Association currently has 30 members in 22 European countries.
