This book will be of primary interest to forest-policy-makers,
scholars of environmental politics and business strategy, environmental
NGOs, and forest company managers. It will also appeal to a broader
range of civil society groups, government and industry agencies,
educators, and informed general readers interested in corporate social
responsibility research and implementation.
