Bozovich obtained an FSC™ Forest Management Certification for 180,000 acres in the Peruvian Amazon

Lima, march 23, 2011

Dear friends:

Today I am pleased to share with you our FSC™ Forest Management Certification, recently earned for 180,000 acres of our forest concession Forestal Otorongo in the Peruvian Amazon. Along with our FSC™ Chain of Custody Certification, obtained some time ago, it reaffirms our commitment to doing business in a socially, environmentally, and economically sustainable way.

Our thanks is due to many: To our employees, without whom this would not have been possible; to our customers, who have sustained us; to the Peruvian government and the nongovernmental organizations whose commitment to the understanding and viable development of the region has been invaluable.

It is our hope that lawful, forward-looking business such as ours, ones which pay taxes, give people jobs, help communities, and sustainably manage resources, will provide a way out of the informality and poverty that have long abounded in the region, and that the Amazon may thereby be sustained, not only as a renewable resource, but as a source of hope and prosperity, and of life.
