Saving Forests From the Demand Side

By Amory Lovins

“Saving Forests From the Demand Side” is a presentation given by Amory Lovins to the World Resource Institute. In the presentation, Lovins argues that efficiency and substitution in all forest-product value chains profitably displace most cutting of forests while providing the same services. Efficiency improvements can be made along the entire value chain, from eliminating junk mail to decreasing the number of pallets used for saving wood fiber. The purpose of this presentation is to describe why forests should be saved and how, by taking specific actions along all parts of the value chain. “
