Compliance and Reporting

We are implementing sound CSR practices; this means that we:

  • Obey the laws of the countries of operation, and go beyond them whenever ethical judgment requires, with respect to Forest management; Labour and Welfare; Health and Safety and the Environment
  • Respect other parties' tenure and use rights
  • Do not use or introduce Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO)
  • Are not involved in illegal logging or the trade of illegal forest products
  • Comply with independently produced environmental management plans ensuring biodiversity and productivity of the forest is maintained

Comply with the requirements of The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES)

  • Ensure all relevant royalties and taxes are paid
  • Invest in community development projects such as schools and civic infrastructure projects
  • Recruit and train local people in long term skilled employment

To further support and measure our social and environmental impact objectives, we have conducted a baseline assessment for IRIS, the catalogue of globally accepted social impact performance metrics. We followed the sector-specific recommendations co-developed by The Finance Alliance for Sustainable Trade (FAST) and IRIS for the selection of core indicators for SME’s in the forestry and agriculture value chain.
