WHY IS THE E N V I R O N M E N T SO IMPORTANT TO US ?
SUSTAINABLE FOREST MANAGEMENT
Sustainability is the key towards the consistent and reliable supply of wood in our future. Our environment plays a huge impact in the way we live. Thus, GWI takes sustainable forest management very seriously by ensuring environmental preservation according to FSC’s strict guidelines. These include dedicated waste management systems, prohibitions on wildlife hunting, and most importantly, logging site regulations and product traceability.
OUR Z E R O W A S T E POLICY
Our “Zero Waste” policy means that every part of the tree that we harvest is used in every possible way. Our unique eco-downstream furniture utilizes all parts of the tree including the stumps, branches, crotches and even rotten logs! We want to ensure that no part of the tree is wasted and left to impact the environment and its sanctity. We also use an eco-boiler for our kiln drying services that converts any waste we have into heat.

CSR – CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Our workers’ safety, trust and future prospects is what allows our operations to keep thriving. This is why CSR is so important to us. Our employee’s children are entitled to free education under schools that we built; Hospitals and clinics have been erected nearby to attend to any pressing injury or sickness; All of our housing is equipped with free cable, water and electricity and we always aim to encourage local cultural festivities and tolerance among different religions. Our workers also get Sundays and public holidays off where we encourage them to rest, rejuvenate and spend time with their loved ones.
FOR OUR WORKERS
Our workers are the driving force in all things we do and we want to ensure we acknowledge them as such. Working in the forests and in the factories are no easy tasks. As such, we aim to provide the best Quality, Health, Safety and Environment Management (QHSE) within our workplace. These include providing First Aid seminars, raising safety and hygiene awareness when working with specialized machines and providing suitable PPE in the working environment.
