Contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals
In 2015 the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) as its central element covering a wide range of social, economic, and environmental development issues. Within the SDG, protecting biodiversity and guaranteeing the livelihoods of the local population are addressed as priorities and targets for 2030. Precious Woods through its certified and sustainable activities in the Congo Basin and Amazon rainforest is a strong contributor to these Sustainable Development Goals.
Moreover, the 2015 Paris Agreement of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) underlines that practicing sustainable forest management is a key element for limiting climate change and its impacts. This commitment was reinforced by various multinational initiatives at the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow in 2021
