Risk of sourcing from Ancient & Endangered forests

Until the company successfully completes the CanopyStyle verification audit and its results are made publicly available, Shandong Yamei will be considered medium to high risk of sourcing from Ancient and Endangered Forests and other controversial areas.

Key Improvements Required

The immediate next step for Shandong Yamei is to formalize agreement with the auditor to initiate the third party verification of progress indicators in policy implementation and additional solutions proposed by the CanopyStyle initiative. Following the first annual CanopyStyle Audit findings, Shandong Yamei will be expected to address any controversial sourcing issues that are identified and progress on remaining sustainability steps, such as supporting conservation solutions and driving new alternative fibers.

Given growth projections in the sector, Shandong Yamei should proactively screen any future ventures and new supply against the ForestMapper and aggressively build next generation solutions into their fiber projections for the coming years.

Areas where the company is showing leadership

In 2016, Shandong Yamei presented, alongside Canopy and partner brands, at the China Chemical Fiber Association (CCF Group) conference, to promote the protection of ancient forests and the need for sustainable sourcing. We are unaware of any significant leadership by the company on these issues since then.
