Individual Assignment_Evidence of Sustainable Practice: a Company Review3ABSTRACTWhile there is an increasing demand for active public involvement in forestry decision-making, Canada has yet to see fully successful Ecosystem Based Management or new sustainable forest management (SFM) in all or any of its provinces. Although, there are positive movements towards achieving forest sustainability within the EBM context. This paper reviews Kruger Inc’sEcosystem Based Management (EBM) practices, by means of a company evaluation using the six key aspects of EBM. The resulting evaluations have enabled recommendations for the betterment of Kruger’s overall EBM practices. There was considerable commonality of results in each key aspect, with a general satisfactory assessment on Kruger’s overall EBM accomplishments. Based on the results and participant evaluations, the techniques and involvements of Kruger appear to be an effective approach to EBM. Although, the evaluation shows that Kruger is effective, the following recommendation seems to prevail: Kruger`s involvement in the ecological integrity of coastal-marine (or any other) systems and the sustainability of both human and ecological systems. Kruger should play a vital role in developing a more comprehensive, engaging, open and accountable process to support informed and socially acceptable decision-making for sustainable coastal-marine systems.INTRODUCTIONKruger Paper Company Limited, was a wholesale paper distribution firm that was founded in Montreal, QC by Joseph Kruger in 1904.
