At the end of this year, two new members are joining ATIBT. We welcome them!
The Precious Woods Group (PW), already a member of ATIBT through the Gabon-based CEB, is a publicly traded company, organized as a holding company. It was created with the aim of proving that it is possible to invest in sustainable projects, with economic viability and socio-environmental responsibility. In 1997, Mil Madeiras became the first indigenous forest management company in Brazil to obtain FSC® certification, adopting its rigorous principles and criteria. Today, Mil Madeiras has already joined another independent forest certification system called CERFLOR, certified by INMETRO and accredited by the PEFC system.
The waste from the Mil Madeiras sawmill provides 40% of the clean energy generated by a thermoelectric plant that supplies the municipality of Itacoatiara, which has about 100,000 inhabitants.
Mil Madeiras wishes to join ATIBT to strengthen its contribution to our association and the Fair&Precious initiative. The company thus becomes a new Fair&Precious certified operator.
Founded in 1982 and managed for 40 years by the Servant family, INPROBOIS is a historical company in Ivory Coast.
The company operates on forest perimeters, and is mainly oriented towards the production of peeled veneers, plywood, handling pallets. Early in 1992, INPROBOIS had already taken the initiative to carry out reforestation, which will represent the majority of the company's supplies in the coming years. Since 2014, the company is OLB certified by Bureau Veritas.
The 2 certificates INPROBOIS N°OLB-CERT/COC-140902 and INPROBOIS N°OLB-CERT/FC- 141001 have been renewed on 05/07/2019. Annual surveillance audits allow to verify the maintenance of the level of compliance of INPROBOIS with the OLB standard.
INPROBOIS wishes to join the ATIBT to contribute to the functioning and the dynamism of the association.
