How do the forestry and wood product industries in Area x impact the CO 2 balance in Area x (and the global CO 2 balance)? Forest Area x HWP from Forest Area x All wood used as fuel in Area x All wood processed/manufactured in Area x Overall impact Approach I
Approach I: Kyoto Protocol-oriented approach
How do the forest and consumers in Area x impact the global CO 2 balance? Forest Area x All HWP used in Area x All wood used as fuel in Area x All HWP used in Area x Overall impact Approach II
Approach II: Consumer-oriented approach
How do the forest and the harvested wood products from Area x impact the global CO 2 balance? Forest Area x HWP from Forest Area x Wood from Area x used as fuel HWP from Forest Area x Overall impact Approach III
Approach III: Value-creation approach
