Environmental and Social Mission

Green Resources AS is a profit oriented plantation, forest products, and carbon offset company that aims at bringing development to some of the poorest areas in the world’s economically under developed countries.

GR is growing trees to generate carbon offsets and to manufacture wood products. At least 10% of the revenues generated from GR's Carbon Offset sales goes to community development projects. Green Resources AS is committed to the highest international environmental and occupational health and safety standards and seeks independent certification for its compliance with such standards. A large number of its plantations are certified under the Forest Stewardship CouncilTM (FSCTM) which is the world’s leading standard for responsible forest management. 

GR conserves natural forest, cultural heritage and other valuable assets and habitats. The organisation only plants on grassland or land that has been abandoned or is degraded. It only harvests plantation forest and replants all harvested areas. GR employs the latest technologies in terms of Geographic Information Systems and works preferably with national professionals to build lasting capacity in the countries where it operates. GR is an equal opportunities company, aiming to establish a gender balance throughout its company on all levels and is promoting diversity amongst its staff in terms of ethnic and religious background.

Green Resources reports on it's sustainability in line with the GRI G4 reporting standards. All the reports are publically available on request. For the latest reports, please see below:
