What we do
How we work with La Forestaire du Nord on charcoal
La Forestière Du Nord has been importing charcoal from the same partner production sites for over a decade, five of which are in Latvia and several other in Baltics states. All these factories use the same wood species and the same carbonization system which gives the Grill O’ Bois brand a uniform quality.
TFT and La Forestière Du Nord decided tto work together on field visits & deploy the CCS (Charcoal Control System) tool on the entirety of their supply chain. This tool helps the company pinpoint which improvements can be made by giving a “score” to each of these four pillars: no deforestation, no exploitation, full transparency and full traceability of the supply chain. TFT usually visits each supplying factory once a year, and the CCS is updated.
Work plan 2018
The Work plan is based on several key actions:
- Values: La Forestière Du Nord shares TFT’s values in terms of responsible charcoal production in terms of environmental, social and technological aspects
- Traceability: La Forestière Du Nord’s sources are checked up to the forest using the Charcoal Control System (CCS) that TFT put into place. TFT will assess all 6 of La Forestière’s sites in 2018.
- Transformation: Using the CCS, recommendations are given to each production site to improve the different aspects linked to responsible charcoal production.
- Verification: Following up on the CCS, TFT checks the progress made over time
La Forestière and TFT have collaborated in the making of a short film explaining TFT’s field work on charcoal. The film was completed end of 2017
