Public policy and legislation can have a significant impact on our business. Many public policy issues, including forest management and environmental regulations, carbon policy and climate change, taxation, and trade policy are discussed in our 2016 Annual Report, pages 9-14, & 38-42 and the 2017 Annual Report, pages 12-22 & 59–68.
