We generate economic added value through sustainable use of tropical forest resources.
We generate social added value by supporting schools, health care, and development projects and creating jobs in remote tropical forest areas.
We generate environmental added value by rigorously managing our forest areas according to sustainable standards, ensuring their long-term survival.
With our wide range of products, our contribution to economic and social development in economically weak regions, and the conservation of our forests and their biodiversity, we make a contribution that goes beyond the traditional forestry and timber industry.
With the adoption of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, the United Nations created a basis for a better future. The focus is on combating poverty, inequality, climate change, and environmental destruction as well as on promoting prosperity, peace, and justice. With our three pillars of sustainability and our protection of the forests, we make an important contribution to the SDGs. You can read more about this contribution >here.
In the same year, the Paris Agreement was adopted by the parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC). The Paris Agreement establishes the foundations for international efforts in the fight against climate change. Conservation of large forest areas is a key point, and thanks to its permanent preservation of 1.1 million ha of tropical forests, Precious Woods makes a significant contribution to this important goal.
