Auditing our way back up the supply chain
14 May 2020
Since January 2019 Vandecasteele Houtimport has employed Carla Vanessa Moraes, accredited Forest Engineer to conduct field auditing and CoC verification.
By performing on-site audits throughout their complete Brazilian supply chain, Vandecasteele Houtimport verifies that all actors in the supply chain have a robust chain of custody system in place.
Vandecasteele Houtimport takes adequate mitigation measures to reduce risks in the supply chain to a low risklevel. Only if all risk mitigation measures together attain a negligible level of risk, the timber can be sourced.
The Vandecasteele Houtimport due diligence implies a continuous process in the daily activities from sourcing, stocking, transporting and selling the timber.
