For the Yanesha, an indigenous group living in Ñagazú, Peru, the adoption of sustainable agriculture practices has meant increased incomes, greater environmental stewardship and enhanced opportunities for local children.
Forward-thinking companies understand the economic value of sustainability and the need to ensure that the wood and wood products they source are of legal origin and were obtained in compliance with the laws of their source country. For the Denmark-based DLH Group, the world's largest tropical timber trader, independent legality verification by the Rainforest Alliance is proving to be an effective tool for working toward these goals.
Sustainability in the Office provides readers with practical information on how and why to source Rainforest Alliance and Forest Stewardship Council certified products for their workplace. For more information and to request hard copies of the brochure, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
