As a result of greater levels of globalisation, coupled with Austria's accession to the European Union, maintaining and increasing international cooperation is of the utmost importance in the work of the BMLFUW.

Austria’s forest and the global sustainability goals
In 2018 the contributions of the Austrian forestry and timber sector to the sustainability goals were recorded with participation of the members of the Austrian Forest Dialogue. The figures and data mentioned show very clearly - the sector makes a considerable contribution to the achievement of all 17 Goals.
