Timber Environmental Policy
Golden Pharos Group will collaborate with all relevant parties and organisations to ensure compliance towards the promotion of good forest management as stipulated under the Forest Stewardship Council ("FSC®") and the Malaysian Criteria and Indicators ("MC&I") for Forest Management Certification (Natural Forest).
Timber Sourcing Policy
Sourcing of timber is mainly from the Group's own certified forest. In circumstances where the Group had to source from alternative suppliers, the Group insists that the supplies are from certified forest. Timber supply is a very critical factor to the Group's expansion programmes and assured sources of supply and the ability to process logs into top-quality finished products inexpensively. The Group has undertaken the species segregation initiative in line with the promotion of lesser known species for commercialisation which is encouraged by the Malaysian Government. In circumstances where the Group had to source from outside alternative suppliers, we urge our suppliers to have their forest certified.
