Social and economic development

FAIR&PRECIOUS recommends the FSC® and PEFC-PAFC tropical forest management environmental protection labels.


Social progress

The production of Fair&Precious timber is designed to promote the socio-economic enhancement of forests.

With rising human population, non-productive forest areas are in danger of being  permanently converted into agricultural and grazing land.

Fair&Precious timber production generates income for local populations, providing the incentive to preserve forests. In remote rural areas, Fair&Precious companies are driving economic growth, while taking on a social role. They contribute to the well-being of local communities by providing access to a wide range of services, such as education and healthcare and housing.

Social progress impact


Fair&Precious companies have chosen to be part of a certification system.

So they allow their operations to be audited by independent third parties and they develop effective traceability tools that facilitate verification of their timber, from the forest to the end consumer.

Purchasing Fair&Precious tropical timber, you support responsible forest management and participate in the socio-economic growth of producer countries. This is thanks to companies which commit to develop their timber processing activities locally. In addition, you not only benefit from a quality ecological product, you also play a leading role in safeguarding fragile ecosystems.
