The worldwide activities of the wood products division include the sustainable harvesting of natural and plantation forests, industrial processing, third party sourcing, logistics, trading and marketing. Dedicated employees ensure that our products meet the highest quality standards and are shipped in a timely manner in order to satisfy the demands of our diverse customer base in markets across the globe.
At Olam, we are committed to sustainable forest management practices and forest certification. Therefore, we strive to obtain and maintain certification for all our forest operations within 5 years. In those cases where supply is not coming from our own operations, we require independent third party verification of legality. Over the next few years Olam aims to become one of the leaders in the industry. Besides our forestry and processing activities we also plan to explore potential carbon opportunities where they exist.
