Forest managers that carry the Fair&Precious brand are custodians of plants and wildlife in tropical environments and advocates of an economic model that favours local processing of forest products.
The conversion of natural forests into plantations or agricultural areas is a threat to climate and biodiversity. Sustainable forest management can preserve these ecosystems, while providing local peoples with tangible services in terms of housing, care and education.
The timber sector is the second largest employer in the Congo Basin countries.
The development of timber processing activities in production areas helps to combat rural exodus and economic emigration.
Buying FSC or PEFC-PAFC certified timber helps to encourage a sustainable industry.
In addition, it also means buying an exceptional natural material with unmatched ecological impact.
Species selected for decking, for example, are naturally resistant and do not require any chemical treatment.
So you can buy a beautiful, durable product responsibly - the optimal answer all round.
By buying FSC or PEFC-PAFC certified timber you can rest assured it meets Fair&Precious' commitments.
"The Fair&Precious programme to promote sustainable management in tropical forests is supported by the German Cooperation with COMIFAC (KfW - BMZ Fund) and the French Development Agency (PRCC)."
