Indufor has brought Mr Anders Portin (M.Sc. For.) on board as Senior Consultant. He will begin on 2 May 2011. Mr Portin joins Indufor from the Finnish Forest Industries Federation, where he worked as Senior Vice President, Forest and Environment.
Indufor serves clients globally in forestry and forest industry. Mr Portin will be responsible for developing consulting services for both private and public clients and will act as advisor in forest policy assignments.
“Indufor has strong skills and competence in the forest sector and an excellent reputation for understanding the needs of clients. Indufor’s pioneering role and international service business expertise are the key elements of its future success. Forestry and natural resource policy is at a very interesting stage nationally, in the EU and globally. The use of renewable natural resources is widely gaining popularity. At the same time, both forest benefits and societal views are changing and diversifying. I believe that with its in-depth expertise, Indufor can develop new types of solutions together with clients”, says Anders.
Suvi Anttila, partner and CEO of Indufor, says, “Indufor has forest projects aiming at sustainable development all over the world. Recent assignments have strongly emphasised the significant role of forests in combating climate change and focused on preventing their illegal and unsustainable use. We are excited to have Anders on our international team and we believe that he will serve the current and emerging needs of Indufor’s existing and new clients well.”
