“Risk concentrations are arguably the single most important cause of major problems
in banks”.1 On the one hand, dealing with concentration risk is important for
the survival of individual banks; therefore, banks should be interested in a proper
management of risk concentrations on their own. On the other hand, the Basel
Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) has found that nine out of the thirteen
analyzed banking crises were affected by risk concentrations,2 which shows that
this issue is important for the stability of the whole banking system.

Forests are an integral part of global sustainable development. The World Bank
estimates more than 1.6 billion people to be dependent on forests for their livelihoods
with some 300 million living in them. The forest product industry is a source of
economic growth and employment, with global forest products traded internationally
is estimated at $327 billion. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates
that every year 130,000 km² of the world's forests are lost due to deforestation.
The concept of forest sustainability dates from centuries ago, although the
understanding of sustainable forest management (SFM) as an instrument that
harmonizes ecological and socio-economic concerns is relatively new. The change in
perspective occurred at the beginning of the 1990s in response to an increased
awareness of the deterioration of the environment, in particular of the alarming loss of
forest resources. The main and most striking cause of this deterioration is the
deforestation occurring in some areas of the world.
