      "llegal logging poses significant risks to the rights of people and can threaten the biodiversity and sustainability of entire forest ecosystems." [...] "Forests have a significant role in reducing the risk of natural disasters, including floods, droughts, landslides and other extreme events. At global level, forests mitigate climate change through carbon sequestration, contribute to the balance of oxygen, carbon dioxide and humidity in the air and protect watersheds, which supply 75% of freshwater worldwide. Forests are the most biologically-diverse ecosystems on land, home to more than 80% of the terrestrial species of animals, plants and insects. They also provide shelter, jobs and security for forest-dependent communities. "

[...] In addition to the damages to the environment and society, illegal logging puts businesses like Danzer, who invest in legal and ethical procurement, at a competitive disadvantage."

The right to free, prior and informed consent, or FPIC, is intended to protect indigenous peoples’ lives, cultures and livelihoods and is used to protect communities from impact on their resources and lands that they legally or customarily own. FPIC is necessary to ensure that communities, indigenous peoples and others are fully aware of and able to reflect on the consequences / impacts of forwarding their rights partially or in full to ex- ternal third parties. Danzer remains committed to the consistent implementation of FPIC according to the FSC Forest Management (Congo Basin) standard (2012) and FSC FPIC Guidelines (2012)."

For example, Danzer stopped procuring at one Russian company at the end of 2016, as investment in a formal FSC Controlled Wood audit could not be justified for the comparatively small volume of wood supply. A relation ship with another supplier in Romania was never started because reliable FSC certified sources could not be secured"

          " The topic of land-and-resource-use rights for local and indigenous communities is unique to the Congo Basin because these issues are not relevant in other regions where Danzer man- ages land or timber resources. The right to free, prior and informed consent, or FPIC, is intended to protect indigenous peoples’ lives, cultures and livelihoods and is used to protect communities from impact on their resources and lands that they legally or customarily own. FPIC is necessary to ensure that communities, indigenous peoples and others are fully aware of and able to reflect on the consequences / impacts of forwarding their rights partially or in full to ex- ternal third parties. Danzer remains committed to the consistent implementation of FPIC according to the FSC Forest Management (Congo Basin) standard (2012) and FSC FPIC Guidelines (2012)."
