What we do
How we work with floval on charcoal
Floval supplies from 6 factories which produce charcoal and one of which also produces firewood. 3 factories are located in Russia and 3 are in Ukraine. TFT and Floval decided to deploy the CCS (Charcoal Control System) tool for all of their factories, all of whom have been assessed by TFT. This tool helps the company see what improvements can be made by giving a score to these four pillars: no deforestation, no exploitation, full transparency and full tractability of the supply chain. The factories are normally 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: Floval shares TFT’s values relating to responsible charcoal production in terms of environmental, social and technological aspects
- Traceability: Floval’s sources are checked back to the forest using the Charcoal Control System (CCS) that TFT put into place. TFT will reassess all 6 of Floval’s supplying sites in 2018.
- 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
Floval’s factory and suppliers in Russia have been assessed in October 2017 for the 2nd or 3rd time depending on the site. These factories have shown a lot of improvement since our last visits, following up on our recommendations that were given using the CCS. Floval’s suppliers in Ukraine were assessed for the first time in February 2018.
