Precious Woods - CEB was the first company in Gabon operating according to the principles of certified and sustainable forestry. As in Brazil, Precious Woods plays a pioneering role in this regard in Gabon.
The company developed the first comprehensive management plan for forestry in Central Africa, which also influenced the national forestry legislation. Under Gabonese law, the forest must now be managed according to certified sustainable principles.
In East Gabon, Precious Woods¬ - CEB manages a concession area of 596 800 hectares, where it harvests about 240 000 cubic metres of logs each year. At the same location, Precious Woods Gabon - CEB operates three sawmills, which have been further expanded since 2011.
