A forest that pays is a forest that stays
When sustainable managed, all types of forests are renewable ecosystems providing essential goods and services to people worldwide. Working closely with sawmills around the world, we help grow the forestry sector and sustain rural communities. By paying a fair, competitive price for primary producers’ products, we provide them with an incentive for keeping the forest standing. Despite the general negative belief, logging respecting the sustainable management principles secures large forest areas remain standing in the long term and avoids deforestation.

As an actor in global timber trade, we share the opinion that the general perception of tropical timber is a major challenge for the entire sector. We want to support honest and smaller producers to continue doing business and create positive change in their countries. We want to raise the bar of procurement in order to eliminate illegally logged timber from the market. We support legislations and certifications for sustainable forestry and make sure that sourcing is in accordance with the highest international standards and local rules.
