The heart of the company is the production and marketing of FSC and PEFC/PACF certified semi-finished tropical timber products out of a total area of 1.2 million hectares of tropical forest.
Utilizing the biomass from timber manufacturing processes to generate green energy enables Precious Woods in Brazil also to sell certified emission reductions (CER). Central to all business activities are the needs of our customers, the driving force behind the economic success of Precious Woods. This is the basis for socially and ecologically sustainable activities and thus for the protection of tropical forests in the long term. The Precious Woods Group with its headquarter in Switzerland employs around 1,300 members of staff in Brazil, Gabon and in Switzerland (2017).
