Sustainability Goal, Objectives and our Commitment

Our sustainability management approach is aligned with several of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their associated targets.

SDG 2 - Zero Hunger

3ACM recognizes its responsibility as one of the major employers in PNG and Ecuador and maintains vital focus on supporting local communities and ensuring access to transport, uniforms and health facilities. Due to a severe COVID situation in Ecuador, 3ACM has regularly participated in food drive programs, making sure that food and nutrients reach those who need them most.

SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-Being

Health and Safety standards are one of our core values. The company constantly monitors and improves co-workers’ awareness of the importance to stay safe and responsible, both at work and at home. In a year marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, we take a great pride in knowing that our efforts contribute directly to the reduction of global health risks and to the elimination of the pandemic situation worldwide.

SDG 5 - Gender Equity

The inclusion of women in all areas of processing, administration, and management level, giving equal opportunities to all genders within the organization.

SDG 8 - Decent Work and Economic Growth

3ACM is one of the leading companies in providing quality employment, training, and development to our employees and their families through our people development and social programs.

SDG 9 - Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure

Being a pioneer in PET and Balsa solutions, 3ACM constantly strives for the next level of innovation and optimization to benefit our customers and the environment. We drive innovation and change, focusing on waste reduction and efficiency in our forestry and industrial processes. Our products are constantly improved, driven by the Hybrid Core Concept: the best combination of sustainability, properties and price. We pride ourselves in offering our partners best-in-class Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

SDG 12 - Responsible Consumption and Production

All our forestry production follows responsible forestry management guidelines and regulations, protecting resources from over-exploitation or harming the social actors, flora, or fauna in our areas of influence. In addition, we increase the resource efficiency and promote sustainable lifestyles across all our industrial and forestry sites. We go the extra mile by not only abiding by local and international regulations but also constantly certifying our global operations across the industry.

SDG 13 - Climate Action

3ACM takes a proactive approach towards consistently reducing industrial emissions, increasing the biomass of our plantations that capture more and more carbon from the atmosphere. Our forestry operation constitutes a carbon sink, offsetting most of our carbon emissions in industrial facilities.

SDG 15 - Life on Land

Our annual High Conservation Value (HCV) monitoring plants in Ecuador and Papua New Guinea ensure that all the wildlife that coexists with our forest plantations is preserved and maintained over time.
