Our CSR policy
OUR CONTRIBUTION TO THE DRIVE TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IS FOCUSED ON BOTH PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT
OUR POLICY IS BASED
ON 5 GUIDING
Through our actions as an environmentally responsible steward of forest areas, we have a positive contribution to make towards achieving the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Since their establishment in 2015, these have created a framework for action, an awareness-raising tool in relation to CSR issues, a source of economic opportunities and a way of boosting cooperation between all stakeholders. These SDGs have informed the implementation of our company’s CSR policy.
