Sustainable Forestry’s Role in Climate Solutions

Wednesday, September 29, 2021 | 10:00 AM
The Committee on Small Business Subcommittee on Underserved, Agricultural, and Rural Business Development will hold a hybrid hearing titled: “Sustainable Forestry’s Role in Climate Solutions.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:00 A.M. on Wednesday, September 29, 2021 in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building. Participating members can also join remotely via Zoom.

As the Federal Government considers options for infrastructure investments and ways to help mitigate and adapt to climate change, the forestry sector offers multiple avenues to address these goals while also promoting small business development in rural and underserved communities. Sustainable forest management can provide economic and social benefits to meet the needs of present and future generations and also play a fundamental role in the natural resource infrastructure of our nation. This hearing will allow members to learn more about the role of sustainable forestry and how small businesses across this sector are helping to address climate change.
