It has operations worldwide with sales of US$4.7 billion and assets of US$14 billion. Its forestry equity comprises more than 680,000 hectares of certified plantations in Chile, Brazil and Argentina which give the business sustainability and a long-term projection. The stewardship of radiata pine plantations with scheduled pruning and thinning has provided top quality raw material and value-added wood products. CMPC Maderas has a production capacity of 1 million m3 of sawn lumber, 500,000 m3 of plywood and 180,000 m3 of remanufactured products. The integrated business model from the forest to our mills optimises production and meets the demanding needs of our customers. These productive processes have cutting-edge technology and strict quality control assuring our demanding standards. CMPC Maderas has products in over 50 countries, due to its solid supply chain and experienced distribution network. CMPC’s experience and strength, reflected by timely service, continuous supply and long-term relations, gives customers peace of mind and trust.

Environment and the Community CMPC is committed to sustainable development, which must make productive activities compatible with the legitimate right of future generations to live in a suitable environment. The main work in this area is focused on renewable forest plantations, replacement of fossil fuels with the biomass, clean productive processes and recycling. Conservation of Biodiversity CMPC signed an Environmental Co-operation Agreement in 2003 to protect the biodiversity and has permanently collaborated with endangered flora and fauna conservation programmes of universities and government bodies. Native Forest Reserves CMPC identifies and records the native forest on its equity, making sure it is not replaced with plantations and that it is suitably protected. With over 153,000 hectares of protected forest, this is essential equity for sustainable development. The Barbanegra reserve in Brazil with 2,400 hectares of native forest should be highlighted. Fundación CMPC and the Community Empresas CMPC is committed to the education and development of communities around its industrial operations, which benefit neighbours of its forest lands and mills with a better quality of life. In its over 10-year history, Fundación CMPC has supported 51 schools, benefitting more than 10,000 children, with the conviction that a better quality of education raises people’s quality of life and future opportunities. CMPC’s “Good Neighbourhood Engagement Plan” aims to create social and economic development opportunities for the surrounding communities. This entails supporting technical secondary schools, community sports facilities and specific training courses for the needs of each group.

Certification All company’s forests are managed with an environmental stewardship system certified in accordance with the ISO 14.001 standard and have Sustainable Forest Management (PEFC) certification by means of accreditation of the national CERTFOR standard. In early 2006, CMPC Maderas secured accreditation and use of the PEFC 24-31-500 logo for its chainof-custody, which certifies that its products come from sustainably managed forests. CMPC Maderas also has OHSAS 18.001 certification on safety and health in the workplace. In 2013, Forestal Mininco secured Forest Stewardship CouncilTM (FSCTM licence number: FSC-C006246) by the international certifying agency Rainforest Alliance. This certification recognises responsible forest management and includes environmental, social and economic standards.
