The event also marked the launch of the new Corporate Forest Responsibility (CFR) Charter.  By setting a target to invest a portion of Corporate Social Responsibility resources in forest conservation, the Charter sets the stage for a concerted private sector-led effort to promote forest and biodiversity conservation.
