We’re proud to participate in this year’s #FSCForestWeek campaign by Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC) from the 24-30th September. We’re highlighting the value of forests, and how choosing sustainably-sourced rubber can help create resilient forests for the future.
Why choose forests?
The world needs forests. They clean the air we breathe and filter the water we drink. They give us the resources to build our homes and provide many essential day-to-day products. Forests also play a vital role as a natural carbon-capture mechanism.
Globally, 1.6 billion people rely on forests directly for their livelihoods and over half the world’s species call forests their home, making them one of the most biodiverse ecosystems on our planet. Life is dependent on healthy, diverse ecosystems and forests are a vital habitat.
Why choose FSC-certified rubber with Corrie MacColl?
As the leader in sustainable forestry FSC is trusted by NGOs, businesses and consumers worldwide to help protect healthy resilient forests or all. FSC is the world’s most recognised, rigorous and trusted forest certification system.
FSC-certified supply chains are still rare for the rubber industry, and must be built and maintained – for the benefit of both the farmer and the customer. We therefore leverage on our ability as a major volume player to aggregate FSC demand and supply through our customers across multiple sectors and by partnering with farmer groups. We also deliver unrivalled distribution and logistics service through our network of global assets.
