Timber Procurement Policy

Eucatex works hard to preserve and conserve the environment, promote sustainable development and foster social and economic well-being. To achieve these goals, it undertook a commitment to control all its timber sources that are not FSC®-certified by not purchasing timber from sources involved in the following situations:

  • Illegally harvested timber.
  • Timber harvested on forest areas where civil or traditional rights are violated.
  • Timber harvested on forest areas that are not FSC-certified, have high conservation value or are threatened.
  • Natural forests that were converted into planted forest or that have non-forestry uses.
  • Timber harvested from forests formed by genetically modified (GM) trees.
