Our Commitment to Social Responsibility

At GreenGold we know that being a responsible corporate citizen means more than just focusing on our business success. As a forest company, we understand the impact we have on local communities,and our employees,and the responsibility we bear for nature. We take our social responsibility seriously and constantly work to improve the way we contribute to the world around us.

Supporting Local Communities and Businesses

We recognize that our operations directly affect the communities we work in, and we want to make sure our presence brings about positive influence. To do this, we focus on creating jobs, if possible prioritize local suppliers and buyers, and actively participating in community initiatives, contributing to the social and economic growth of the regions where we operate.

In addition to our efforts to support local businesses, we also offer financial support to communities through various initiatives. This includes funding for community projects, donations to local charities, and sponsorship of events that promote the well-being and development of the regions in which we operate. By providing financial assistance, we aim to create a lasting impact on the communities we serve and contribute to their overall prosperity. Especially in Romania the Company has a long history of social support, with a particular focus on children from rural areas and disadvantaged regions, identifying their needs and providing resources to prevent and reduce school dropout rates and improve their level of education.

Open and honest communication with community members allows us to address any concerns and work together to find the best solutions for all parties involved.

Employee Health, Safety, and Education

The well-being and safety of our employees are of utmost importance to us. We invest in health and safety programs to ensure that our team members can work in a secure and supportive environment.

We also believe in educating our employees about sustainable forestry practices and the ecosystem services that nature provides. By empowering our team with knowledge about responsible forest management, we can ensure that our operations have a minimal impact on the environment and contribute to the long-term health of the forests under our care.

Promoting Sustainable Forestry and Ecosystem Services

We recognize the essential role that forests play in providing ecosystem services such as clean air, water purification, and climate regulation. As a responsible forest company, we are committed to educating the public about the importance of sustainable forestry and the benefits of preserving nature’s resources.

We collaborate with educational institutions, non-governmental organizations, and local communities to develop and deliver educational programs and resources on sustainable forestry and ecosystem services. By raising awareness and promoting responsible practices, we aim to foster a sense of stewardship for the environment and contribute to a more sustainable future. We take pride in our efforts to support local communities, ensure the well-being of our employees, and promote sustainable forestry practices. Through continuous improvement and collaboration, we aim to create a lasting, positive impact on society.
