Sustainability

HTE is committed to responsible procurement and management of natural resources, especially wood.

We also manage our business in a way that makes efficient use of all resources and avoids waste. Care for the environment is engrained in our culture and demonstrated in our business on a day-to-day basis.

We hold PEFC Chain of Custody Certification, thereby encouraging sustainable forest management.

The requirements set by the PEFC standard are to:

  • Safeguard ecologically important forest areas
  • Protect and enhance biological diversity
  • Prohibit forest conversions
  • Prohibit most hazardous chemicals
  • Prohibit genetically modified trees
  • Respect the rights of workers and indigenous peoples
  • Encourage local employment
  • Comply with fundamental International Labour Organisation ILO) conventions
  • Provide consultation with local people and stakeholders
  • Respect traditional land rights and local customs
