Fair&Precious is a collective brand promoting the development of a sustainable, ethical and legal tropical timber sector. In concrete terms, Fair&Precious acts to enhance the value of the Congo Basin's forest resources and to promote good practices in the tropical timber industry and the purchase of certified wood.
Fair&Precious recommends the FSC® and PEFC-PAFC tropical forest management environmental protection labels.
The Fair&Precious brand was created at the initiative of the International Tropical Timber Technical Association (ATIBT). ATIBT's mission of is to promote the development of a sustainable, ethical and legal tropical timber sector.
Fair&Precious forest managers adhere to the strictest environmental standards and devote significant budgets to ensure that they are observed and verified by independent bodies. For them, best practices and respect for the environment must take precedence above all other considerations.
For Fair&Precious forest managers, dialogue and respect for others are fundamental values, which is why they work in a hands-on way on a daily basis, in the field, to ensure that human development is carried out in balanced manner with the forest.
The objective of the Fair&Precious brand is to attract end users to an ecological and responsible material, to encourage them to be "militant consumers" that act with an awareness of their impact and that take responsibility accordingly.
Aware that overconsumption must gradually be replaced by more qualitative and participatory approaches, Fair&Precious forest managers want to shape a new way of doing things, by creating a strong timber sector that above all benefits producer countries.
