The forest ecosystems use case will identify information on ecosystem services produced in a managed forest, in particular provisioning services (wood and timber), and regulating services, for hydrology and climate through the water and carbon cycle, respectively. This will support the identification and validation of a business model (i.e. the model that describes the logic according to which an organization operates) of forestry companies that intend to exchange ecosystem services produced by sustainably managed forests. Such a business model will answer business related questions such as: How should these companies operate? With which customers and with which partners? What key activities and resources need to be exploited to sustainably manage the forest and sell the ecosystem services produced? Possible stakeholder is the Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes (PEFC, Italian or international office), with which both SISTEMA, MEEO and CMCC extensively and successfully collaborated in the past, and that can easily attract members of its huge network from forest owners/managers to actors of the wood/timber value chain in the Pilot.
