Sustainability Policy

The Practerra Sustainability Program (PSP) was developed with six key objectives to bring about change in the normal operation of our supply chain. We are determined to aid in any measure necessary to eradicate illegal logging resulting in deforestation of natural habitats in native forests.

 

All of the products that Practerra sells are certified sustainable - either by FSC or the relevant PEFC organisation as per customer requirements.
