About us

Precious Woods is one of the leading companies in sustainable management of tropical forests globally. The group was founded in 1990 with its headquarter based in Switzerland.

The heart of the company is sustainable forest management as to the highest standards and the production and marketing of FSC
®-certified semi-finished tropical timber products. Using the biomass from timber manufacturing processes for the production of green energy enables Precious Woods in Brazil also to sell certified emission reductions (CER). Central to all business activities are the needs of our customers, the driving force behind the economic success.

This is the basis for socially and ecologically sustainable activities and thus for the protection of tropical forests in the long term. The Precious Woods Group with its headquarter in Switzerland employs around 1300 members of staff in Brazil, Gabon and Switzerland (2016).
