Forests are major carbon stores that regulate the global climate. Sustainable forestry can make a crucial contribution to climate change mitigation by managing these important carbon stocks, lowering emissions and providing a source of renewable energy. At the same time, forestry can facilitate adaptation to some of the effects of climate change such as soil erosion and increased flood risk and it offers great potential benefits in terms of biodiversity and soil fertility. This is one of the factsheets accompanying the brochure "The European Investment Bank Promoting Climate Action"
