Risk of sourcing from Ancient and Endangered Forests

Canopy has engaged to understand and acted to address Shandong Yamei’s key concern with the auditing process and hopes the company will initiate an audit in response. However, until the company successfully completes the CanopyStyle Audit and its results are made publicly available, Shandong Yamei may have risk of sourcing from Ancient and Endangered Forests and other controversial areas. 

Canopy recommends a considered approach by the marketplace at this stage.

Key Improvements Required

  • The immediate next step for Shandong Yamei is to formalize an agreement with an auditor to initiate the third-party audit to verify progress in implementing its Wood and Pulp Sourcing Policy as well as other elements of the CanopyStyle initiative.
  • Use ForestMapper and complementary guidance documents such as the Dissolving Pulp Mill Classification to ensure that all current and any new suppliers are not sourcing from Ancient and Endangered Forests.
  • Following auditing, Shandong Yamei can then address any sourcing issues that are identified and progress on remaining sustainability steps, such as supporting conservation solutions and driving the use of new alternative fibres.

Areas where the company is showing leadership

Despite continued dialogue with Canopy, the company is not yet moving forward with the audit and therefore it cannot be confirmed if they are progressing in fulfilling policy commitment made in 2015.
