Identification of Environmental/Social Impacts and formulation of mitigation measures

National and state laws typically prescribe environmental and social impact assessments for any kind of development activity with potentially negative impacts. This requirement also affects natural resource managers such as timber companies producing, transporting, and/or processing timber. Timber companies will have to go beyond blue-print approaches to demonstrate their environmental and social commitment in the up-stream and down-stream production process. Each business and impact is different, requiring the development of case-specific mitigation measures to prove the environmental and social acceptability of the management scheme.
