Our Vision

Preserving Our Planet for Future Generations


  • We will plant 20,000 hectares of new forest by 2030.
  • By planting new forests and not harvesting, we are actively contributing to climate change mitigation
  • We will develop innovative solutions to address the climate challenge.
  • We will make a significant contribution towards the world’s ambition to limit global temperature rise to a maximum of 1.5 °C.


  • We will lead the science on the regeneration of forests to native state.
  • Where practical, selected by-products from our forest management programme will be used for a range of sustainable economic applications, such as the development of bio-fuels or in bio-chemistry.
  • We will define and lead industry best practice.

Trusted partnerships:

  • We do what we say – every time.
  • We deliver value for our partners – every year.
