Forestry is more than just trees. It is about the individuals and communities that it touches too. Our human and social responsibility legacy is something we are incredibly proud of.
Through forestry we are able to uplift and upskill our workforce, enabling them to progress in the workplace and at home. The number of people dependent on those working in the forest industry is far greater than the workforce we employ – this is called the multiplier effect.
In many instances the sector provides an income to people living in deep rural areas where there is no other sustainable source of income. We provide direct employment to thousands, but also an opportunity for tens of thousands more to lead meaningful and dignified lives through access to roads, schools and clinics in our areas of operation.
Here we look at how forestry has made a difference, promoting the good work being done and inspiring future programmes so we continue to make progress.
