Digital maturity natural resources sector

The Forest Products industry continues to face significant challenges, including variable commodity prices, trade barriers, labour concerns, and environmental scrutiny. Economic drivers, such as fluctuating housing starts in foreign exchange volatility, add a second layer of factors that need to be considered. To be successful in this marketplace, companies should remain agile, innovative, and focused.

A combination of regulation, stakeholder pressure, and voluntary action is resulting in companies incorporating sustainability and environmental concerns into their business strategies and processes. The global issue of climate change is having an impact on a national and local level as companies are beginning to focus their attention on the need for sustainable business development.

We've worked with clients on a number of projects, including:

→ Planning for the sustainable management of forestlands
→ Auditing forestlands and operations for compliance with various types of certifications
→ Providing due diligence by professionals with on-the-ground experience
→ Assessing the impact of trade duties on exported timber and forest products
→ Developing effective tax structures for corporate tax, and special partnerships
→ Identifying and implementing cost optimization approaches

Ht corps has a team of professional foresters and biologists, experienced auditors, tax and financial advisers, and environmental systems practitioners who can help forest products companies understand their strategic issues and how they can resolve them.
