            "Sustainable forest plantation management is certified through CERTFOR-PEFC™ (Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) to guarantee the protection of native forests and biodiversity. This ensures that wood intended for industrial use is obtained solely from registered plantations and is completely traceable from source to destination. This certification helps CMPC find the synergy between the economic, social and environmental aspect of its operations. Therefore, all production facilities must consult neighboring communities and establish long-term links to improve integration between productive operations and social support programs in order to ensure the preservation of forest assets."
