Sustainability as corporate principle for Precious Woods

Since the founding of Precious Woods sustainability is at the core of her corporate philosophy. Sustainability means the creation of added value in economic, ecological and social terms – for investors, employees, business partners and stakeholder groups.

The added value should be long term and benefiting also future generations. With tropical forestry Precious Woods has taken on one of the biggest sustainability challenges for human kind.

The total forest area under FSC
® certification was 186 million hectares at the end of 2015, which corresponds to the area of Germany, France, Spain and Italy. But only 10% of that area covers tropical and subtropical forests, which means they are still highly underrepresented in terms of FSC®-certification. Precious Woods manages slightly less than 10% of the total FSC®-certified natural tropical forest areas.
