Belonging to and working with a community is something Tembec is familiar with. The company's roots lie in the community, when in 1972 it was founded by the citizens of Temiscaming in the province of Quebec (Canada). Being a forest products manufacturer, you've often heard us say how much we love trees. It’s indeed very important for Tembec to wisely manage and protect its initial resource. The company has been undertaking multiple actions to protect and preserve its environment and everyone it involves. For instance, we were one of the first pioneers to get the FSC certification, whose goal is to protect the forest lands through sustainable forest management. You can see below all our forest lands certified at the time of September 2013.
I am proud to say that I work for a company that is a good corporate citizen. In its 2013 sustainability report, Tembec wants to share with you its goals and accomplishments in terms of sustainable business practices. To find out more please click here. And as always, comments are very welcome.
