How we work with Carbonex on Charcoal
Carbonex produces charcoal from its factory in central France. TFT and Carbonex decided to deploy the CCS (Charcoal Control System) tool on the entirety of the company’s supply chain. This tool helps the company pinpoint which improvements can be made by giving a score to these four pillars: no deforestation, no exploitation, full transparency and full traceability of the supply chain. The factory is visited each year, and the CCS is updated, depending on the original CCS score of the factory.
Work plan 2018
The Work plan is based on several key actions:
- Values: Carbonex shares TFT’s values in terms of responsible charcoal production in terms of environmental, social and technological aspects
- Traceability: Carbonex’s sources are checked back to the forest using the Charcoal Control System (CCS) that TFT put into place.
- Transformation: Using the CCS, recommendations are given to improve the different aspects linked to responsible charcoal production.
- Verification: Following up on the CCS, TFT checks the progress made over time
Carbonex is building a new production factory with a capacity of 15000 tons/year in the same area as their current factory. TFT will implement the CCS on this new factory as well.
