Linda Walker is Director of Forests at World Wildlife Fund, one of the world’s leading conservation organizations. Her focus is engaging with US companies, trade associations and other entities on responsible forest product sourcing and other actions to conserve the world’s forests. As part of this, she leads WWF’s Global Forest & Trade Network-North America program, which supports companies interested in implementing leadership practices for forests. She and her team also work to advance technologies and policies for combatting illegal logging.
