VALUING INDIGENOUS CULTURE
“Valuing Indigenous Culture" is one of our four sustainability pillars, and our objective is to engage with indigenous people to support their cultural heritage. Prime Forest has been partnering with indigenous communities since the inception of our company. We have developed a successful 10+-year, long-term, global program with Indigenous Leaders to collaborate and grow with the 21st-century program demands.
We continue to build trust between leaders by keeping our agreements. Both parties work in partnership to deliver on business demands for valued programs. In good times and in challenging times we can trust each other to deliver as promised.
PASSING THE KNOWLEDGE
We partner with communities by collaborating with marketing and management of new business opportunities at the request of Indigenous Leaders via brainstorming ideas, concepts, and implementation for long-term success.
We donate money directly back to Indigenous programs for continued long-term success. For the past three years, Prime Forest Products has donated money to replant 2x as many trees as harvested for purchases each year. Our plan is to continue donating back until all trees harvested have been replanted twice.
To strengthen our commitments on supporting the indigenous cultural heritage, Prime Forest is committed to:
• Increase long-term sustainable wood programs sourced from native lands.
• Reestablish trusted partnerships between business and the indigenous community.
• Capacity building program to build skills and resources within indigenous communities.
