Forest-Climate Working Group

America's only forest sector coalition working to advance climate change solutions.

We unite the forest sector by creating a valuable forum for open dialogue and sharing ideas among the coalition’s diverse network of members; speaking with one voice to federal policymakers seeking to make an impact on the climate crisis; and providing policymakers with innovative, science-based ways to leverage forests and forest products as a natural climate solution. We are taking action in four areas:

Federal Policy

We have long been trusted advisors to federal officials. We work with lawmakers from both political parties and federal agencies to educate them on how to support forest-climate solutions.

State Policy

We help the U.S. Climate Alliance states set and bring to life ambitious commitments to forest-climate solutions by convening Learning Labs and providing technical assistance.

Voluntary Carbon

We help support the success of voluntary carbon markets through innovation and communications.

Knowledge Sharing

We lead on creating and sharing the best climate-smart practices and tools being developed across the sector.


Amount of U.S. carbon emissions from burning fossil fuels that U.S. forests and forest products capture and store annually.
