The fight against deforestation


On average, Fair&Precious timber production harvests 1-2 trees per hectare every 30 years (the average length of a forest concession granted by states).

This rigorous selection, which is based on accurate inventories, ensures that Fair&Precious foresters harvest less timber than is produced by natural growth.

Such sustainable management ensures natural forests are preserved rather than converted to intensive agriculture, which is the leading cause of deforestation.

As a result, forests remain for generations to come.

The Fight against global warming


By protecting tropical forests, Fair&Precious timber production optimises their vital role in the fight against global warming.

The carbon footprint of a sustainably managed forest is superior to that of a natural forest as the harvested timber ensures the continuous storage of captured CO2, whereas in-situ decomposition releases it.

Thanks to their technical characteristics, tropical timber products have other ecological virtues, due to their durability and the fact that they don’t require chemical treatment.

They become even more environmentally significant if the timber substitutes petroleum-based materials and fuels, or metals and minerals. By way of comparison, manufacture of timber products requires ten times less energy than steel.
