Responsible Forest Stewardship (RFS)

Commitment to Sustainability

We are committed to maintaining a balance between social, environmental and economic sustainability in our business. Our efforts go far beyond just reducing our own impact. We believe in regenerating resources, distributing wealth and creating opportunities along our value chain.

Goals for Sustainability and Innovation

Our goals are sustainability, resilience and eco-efficiency. Not only for Raizwood and our customers, but also for our employees, business partners, surrounding agriculture and natural resources. This is also reflected in our product innovation, where we continually strive for improvements in waste reduction, cost control and carbon contribution management.

Principles and Certifications

Our goals are reflected in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to ensure we create real value for our global stakeholders. We manage our plantations and factory according to the principles of sustainable development and source and supply only from global partners who do the same. Our internationally recognized certifications include the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the South African National Standard (SANS), approved by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS).
