By September 23, 2019 News page

The Federal Department of Agriculture has shown their continued support for the Australian forest and wood products industry by showcasing a number of promotional videos covering the environmental, economic and social benefits of the industry.

“I congratulate Assistant Minister Duniam and the Federal Department of Agriculture for the work on these videos and willingness to engage with industry. This content is a fantastic resource to showcase the great work of our industries” – Mr Greg McComack, Chair of the Australian Forest Products Association (AFPA).

The main video linked below highlights the importance of the forestry industry in Australia. It covers the versatility of wood products and demonstrates how Australians use this sustainable material in every day life.

Not only do the series of videos share the benefits of the industry, but also addresses the passion and commitment the industry has for a sustainable future, protecting wildlife, the health of our forests and the support to Australian communities.

“The Federal Department of Agriculture videos are an impressive representation of the Australian forest and wood products industry. They draw attention to advantages that aren’t often shared. Benefits like the passion and enthusiasm that Australian workers have for the forest, the importance of communities and how they thrive in conjunction with timber businesses, and the positive economic impact that the industry has on Australia” – Megan Para, Marketing Manager at Australian Sustainable Hardwoods (ASH).

We encourage you to watch all five videos that have been developed with different themes.
