OUR VALUES AND COMMITMENTS
Environmental Code of Conduct
At Hampton, we believe we have an important role to play in making sure forests, the wood products sector, and the communities in which we operate are resilient, robust, and sustainable for generations to come. Our vision of sustainability focuses on the economic, social, and environmental health of communities where:
- – Streams, rivers, and drinking water systems are clean.
- – Land is used efficiently and in ways that create a wide variety of benefits.
- – Renewable resources are promoted and used to support energy, housing, and other needs.
- – All people can earn a living wage and share equally in environmental, social, and cultural benefits.
We operate in a manner that protects the environment and human health and safety. Hampton Family Forests are certified and audited to ensure we meet or exceed environmental standards set forth in the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI). We also recognize that sustainability is a long-term process of continuous improvement. As such, we are committed to the following principles and codes of conduct that meet or exceed local, state, federal, and provincial laws and regulations in order to enhance environmental conservation, safety, public awareness, and quality of life in our communities. This policy extends to all of our operations, from the forest to the mill.
