FSC Chain of Custody Audit

Under a new modality and with important modifications in the standards, once again we have had a good performance. This audit verifies that FSC certified forest products are identified and separated from other non-certified materials. It is a chain that begins in the field and ends on the ship. This certification allows companies to label their products so consumers can identify and choose those products that support a responsible forest management model.

National Tree Day

On this special day, we pay tribute to the trees for everything they offer us. Among all their benefits, they fight against climate change, absorbing and storing CO2 and releasing oxygen. They are good for our health too. Going into a wood, walk slowly, close your eyes for a few minutes, sharpen your ear, breathe in its aromas, breathe deeply. The Japanese call this practice "Forest Bath" and it was developed as a therapy to combat stress.

World Environment Day

We are in a time of urgent need for global decarbonization. Facing this challenge, the sustainable forest industry is a real alternative for the replacement of synthetic fibers, fossil fuels, structural elements for construction such as concrete, aluminum and steel; all of them of great impact on the carbon cycle, energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. It is for this reason that sustainable forest management is part of the solution.

Action Protocol - COVID-19

Given the health emergency that the country is going through in reference to CORONAVIRUS, it is a necessity for FAS to contribute from the workplace by establishing preventive measures that allow taking care of everyone's health. Therefore, we have established measures to minimize contagion through the elaboration of an Action Protocol for all personnel. In it, the recommendations of the MSP are considered, but also the study of each area, considering theirs needs. In turn, a protocol was drawn up exclusively for contractor companies that provide services to FAS.
