Your new organisation
The Australian Forest Products Association (AFPA) is the peak body representing tree growing, processing, and pulp, paper and bioproduct industries. Approximately 90% of the Australian forest fibre industry is directly or indirectly represented through AFPA.

  • Help shape the future of forest industries in a carbon constrained, national and global economy
  • Uncover innovative solutions to help them meet climate goals and at the same time, help Australia become cleaner and greener.
  • Help create the future policies which AFPA will advocate for.
  • Build relationships with key stakeholders, including members, politicians from all parties, other industry advocacy groups and policy leaders
