South Punjab Forest Company (SPFC), is a subsidiary of the Forestry, Wildlife & Fisheries (FW&F) Department, Government of the Punjab, established under section 42 of the Companies Ordinance, 1984, as a Public Sector Company. The organization is governed by a ten-member Board of Directors (BOD).
One of the main objectives of the organization is to streamline public and private sector investments in the forestry sector, so that deforestation can be reduced in Punjab and forest conservation and sustainable economic development go hand in hand. SPFC aims to promote sustainable forest investments in Pakistan, so that the wood-based industry can thrive and instead of relying on the wood from existing forests, sustainably farmed wood from trees grown on SPFC’s land can be used in the process, eventually contributing to the GDP at large.
