保護森林纖維采購政策
[生效時間:2018年8月3日]

 
宜賓龙虎娱乐集團有限公司承諾將在漿、紙、溶解漿和纖維素纖維產業發揮領導作用,并將與我們的木漿供應商和Canopy共同努力推動森林可持續管理,保護原始瀕危森林。
 
宜賓龙虎娱乐集團有限公司支持從非原始瀕危森林地區采料以木質纖維為原材料的漿、紙、纖維素纖維和織物的生產,采料地區應不包括印度尼西亞的熱帶雨林,加拿大的北方針葉林等地區,除非該地具備保護方案或者森林管理委員會證書。
 
以下原則適用于所有人造纖維素纖維,織物和紡織品,包括但不僅限于人造絲,粘膠纖維,萊賽爾纖維,莫代爾和我公司生產的已注冊商標的產品、漿、紙等。該項承諾適用于我們自己的經營范圍和采料活動。該政策支持可帶來長期環境、社會和經濟效益的原則。
 
承諾范圍
我們的經營活動,包括控權公司,管理的公司和/或者投資的公司—都應遵守此項政策。
我們將只從透明的,具有可追溯性的且遵守此項政策的原材料供應商采料。
如果供應商違背了這些標準,我們將首先幫助其改變其生產行為,如果我們發現其纖維來源于政策所禁止的地區,我們將重新評估是否與其保持合作。
 
保護原始瀕危森林[1]和森林景觀完整[2]
宜賓龙虎娱乐集團有限公司支持保護原始瀕危森林,拒絕從該地區采購漿、紙、溶解漿制作纖維素纖維。因此,我們將對我們正在使用的木漿和纖維進行評估,確保我們沒有使用來自原始瀕危森林的原料,如加拿大和俄羅斯的北方針葉林,沿海熱帶雨林,印度尼西亞、亞馬遜和西非的熱帶森林和泥炭地,或者珍稀物種的棲息地。
與我們的纖維供應商合作努力逐步放棄使用從以上地區獲取的纖維并且尋找合適的替代品。
杜絕使用來源存在爭議的纖維,這些來源包括非法伐木[3]的木材公司或1994年后通過自然森林轉化或簡化而開墾的樹木種植園。
 
認同、尊重并支持人權和社區權利
我們在此要求我們的供應商遵守《世界人權宣言》并且尊重當地和農村社區對其領地、土地和資源[4]的社區法律、風俗習慣和使用者權利。為達到這一目標,我們要求我們的供應商充分尊重當地居民和農村社區的權利,在新的伐木權利劃撥和樹木種植園開發之前,給予或保留他們的自主、事先和知情同意權(FPIC),解決投訴和爭議,通過透明的、負責任的申訴機制和雙方共同認可的爭端解決方法設法彌補之前的違反人權行為。
 
研發創新和替代性纖維 
我們將與Canopy、創新型公司和供應商合作,共同探索并促進減少環境和社會負面影響的纖維的發展。我們將在合適的情況下發揮自己的積極作用,支持使用替代性纖維(如農業廢物[5]和再回收纖維)作為原料的木漿和纖維素纖維商業生產的研發進程。
 
倡導保護方案
在與Canopy的合作中,我們將支持具有合作性和前瞻性的系統解決方案,保護僅存的原始瀕危森林,包括溫哥華島的沿海溫帶雨林,大熊雨林[6],加拿大的北方針葉林[7]和印度尼西亞的雨林[8]
 
森林證書
我們將要求所有來源于森林的優先選擇的纖維是負責任管理的森林,并經過森林管理委員會(FSC)認證系統的認證。經過FSC認證的種植園[9]為解決方案的組成部分。
 
透明度可追溯性和驗證
我們會保證在2019年前實現我們運營體系和供應鏈的透明度和可追溯性,并會將我們整體供應鏈(監管鏈)與工廠,種植園和森林地區連接起來,以明確我們原材料的來源,包括木漿和種植園/木質纖維。我們將與我們的利益相關者共同努力,為我們的運營和供應鏈建立第三方驗證系統,至2020年實現原始瀕危森林免費驗證。
 
減少溫室氣體足跡
我們認識到森林和泥炭地作為碳貯藏庫的重要性,并會支持促進森林保護,減少高碳價值森林流失的倡議,鼓勵銷售商和供應商避免開發這些區域,優先選擇利用有效辦法積極減少其溫室氣體足跡的銷售商和供應商。
 
防治污染
漿和粘膠纖維制造是資源密集型產業,可能導致空氣和水污染并影響整體環境質量。該政策不能解決這些重要的環境問題。然而,我們會在溶解漿和粘膠纖維生產中投資使用最潔凈的生產技術。
 
信息傳播
我們深知在客戶、員工和同行業企業傳播環保意識的重要性。因此,我們將會在網站和公共傳播中重點突出我們的環保工作。
 

 
[2]完整森林景觀(IFL)指的是在目前討論的森林范圍內不間斷的自然生態系統區域,該區域沒有明顯的人類活動,并且擁有足夠的面積使得所有當地的生物多樣性,包括多種多樣物種的種群生命力可以得以保存。()
 
[3]合法的森林管理是指遵守所有適用的國際、國內和當地法律的管理,包括環境、林業、民權法律和條約。
[5]農業廢物指的是廢物/食品生產或其他過程中的副產品殘料,可用來增長纖維的生命周期。依據其獲取方式,這些纖維可包括亞麻、甘蔗渣和麻。
 
[6]當保護方案最終確定,我們將考慮從大雄雨林采料。該雨林為沿海溫帶雨林,沿海溫帶雨林曾占據了地球0.2%的面積,然而今天只有當初25%的雨林得以保留。環保人士、伐木公司、第一民族和英屬哥倫比亞政府于2006年簽訂的大熊雨林協議包括了一個新的土地管理體制,名為生態系統為基礎的管理。該體制將超過2百萬公頃劃為禁止伐木區域,并針對對保護區之外的區域頒布了新的較寬松的伐木條例。所有的利益相關者目前都達成了一致,并正在努力推動政府于2015年9月前貫徹實施該項協議。
[請注意該腳注十分重要,否則您可能將該政策理解為盡管保護條例已生效也不應當在該區域獲取原料。這樣不利于林業公司在其他原始瀕危森林地區簽訂此類型的保護協議。]
 
[7]加拿大的北方針葉林是世界上最大的非冰凍淡水儲存地,并且是世界上最大的陸地碳匯的組成部分—相當于26年的全球化石燃料消耗量。Canopy致力于通過合作建立新的保護區,保護瀕危物種并推動加拿大北方針葉林的可持續采伐。
該區域按照規定將在最大范圍內新建溶解漿工廠,溶解漿將用于生產纖維素纖維為基礎的織物。
 
)(APP)最近實施了一項頗具希望的森林政策,跟蹤該政策的實施情況十分重要,因為這樣可以幫助我們了解它是否可作為印度尼西亞雨林的可持續性解決方案,并預測APRIL是否會追隨APP實施同樣的政策。
 
[9]指的是“已經種植或播種外來或本土樹種了的,通常情況下品種單一,樹木間距整齊,樹齡一致,極度缺少自然森林所擁有的基本特征和關鍵元素”的種植園地區。1994年之前建立的種植園通常已經通過FSC認證。http://www.fsc.org/download.plantations.441.htm


Fibre Procurement Policy for Protecting Forests
[Effective:August 20th, 2018]

 
 
Yibin Grace Group Co. Ltd. is committed to playinga leadership role in the pulp, paper, dissolving pulp & cellulosic fibre industry and will workwith our wood fibre suppliers and Canopy in order to promote sustainable forest management and the protection of ancient and endangered forests.
 
Yibin Grace Group Co. Ltd.supports the production of pulp, paper, cellulosic fibres & fabrics from wood fibre that is not sourced in ancient and endangered forests, such as Indonesia’s tropical forest and Canada’s Boreal Forest, unless meaningful conservation plans and FSC certification are in place.
 
The following principles apply to all man-made cellulosic fibers, fabrics and textiles, including but not limited to rayon, viscose, lyocell, modal and trademarked product linesproduced by our company, as well as to the pulp and paper we produce. This commitment addresses our own operations as well as our procurement practices. This policy supports principlesthat result in long-term environmental, social and economic benefits.
 
Scope of Commitment
All of our operations, including companies we control, manage and/or have an investment in – will be in compliance with this policy.
 
We will source our raw material only through suppliers that are transparent, traceable and comply with this policy.
 
If suppliers contravene these criteria, we will first engage them to change practices and then re-evaluate our relationship with them if we find that fiber is coming from sources that do not meet this policy.
 
Conservation of Ancient & Endangered Forests[1]and Intact Forest Landscapes[2]:
Yibin Grace Group Co. Ltd.supports a future that does not use ancient and endangered forest for pulp or paper, or dissolving pulp to make cellulosic fibers. We will, therefore:
·         Assess our existing use of wood pulp and fiber and ensure that we are not sourcing fibers made from ancient and endangered forests areas such as the Canadian and Russian Boreal Forests; Coastal Temperate Rainforests; tropical forests and peatlands of Indonesia, the Amazon and West Africa, or endangered species habitat.
·         Work with our fibresuppliers towards phasing out and finding suitable alternatives to any fibre sourced from these regions.
·         Eliminate sourcing fiber from other controversial sources including companies that are logging forests illegally[3] and from tree plantations established after 1994 through the conversion or simplification of natural forests.
 
Recognizing, respecting and upholding human rights and the rights of communities
We will request that our suppliers respect the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and acknowledge indigenous and rural communities legal, customary or user rights to their territories, land, and resources.[4] To do so, we request that our suppliers acknowledge the right of Indigenous People and rural communities to give or withhold their Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) before new logging rights are allocated or tree plantations are developed, resolve complaints and conflicts, and remediate prior human rights violations through a transparent and accountable grievance mechanism and mutually agreeable dispute resolution process.
 
Innovative and Alternative Fiber Development
We will collaborate with Canopy, innovative companies and suppliers to explore and encourage the development of fiber sources that reduce environmental and social impacts. Where appropriate, we will play an active role in the research and development of commercial scale production of pulp and cellulosic fiber made from alternative fiber sources such as agricultural residues[5]and recycled fibers.
 
Advocacy for Conservation Solutions
Working with Canopy we will support collaborative and visionary system solutions that protect remaining ancient and endangeredforests in the Coastal Temperate Rainforests of Vancouver Island and Great Bear Rainforest[6], Canada’s Boreal Forests[7], and Indonesia’s Rainforests.[8]
 
Forest Certification
We will preference fibre sourced from forests that are responsibly managed forests, certified to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification system. FSC certified plantations[9] are part of the solution.  
 
Transparency, Traceability and Verification
We will ensure the transparency & traceability of our own operations and supply chains by 2019, and will identify the origin of our raw material sourcing, including pulp and plantations/wood fibre, through mapping our entire supply chain (chain of custody) back to the mills, plantations, and forest areas. We will work with stakeholders to develop third party verification systems of our operations and supply chain and be verified ancient & endangered forest free by 2020.
 
Reduction of Greenhouse Gas Footprint
Recognizing the importance of forests and peatlands as carbon storehouses, we will support initiatives that advance forest conservation to reduce the loss of high carbon value forests, by encouraging vendors and suppliers to avoid harvest in these areas, and by giving preference to those that use effective strategies to actively reduce their greenhouse gas footprint.
 
Pollution Prevention
Pulp and viscose manufacturing is a resource-intensive process that can lead to air and water emissions that impact overall environmental quality. This policy does not address these other critical environmental issues, however, we will invest in and use the cleanest pulp, dissolving pulp and viscose manufacturing technology.
 
Communication
We recognize the benefit of creating environmental awareness among our customers, employees and peers. As such, we will highlight our environmental efforts on our website and in public communications.
 

 
[2]Intact Forest Landscape (IFL) is an unbroken expanse of natural ecosystems within the zone of current forest extent, showing no signs of significant human activity, and large enough that all native biodiversity, including viable populations of wide-ranging species, could be maintained. ()
 
[3]Legal forest management is management that complies with all applicable international, national, and local laws, including environmental, forestry, and civil rights laws and treaties. 
[5]Agricultural residues are residues/by-products left over from food production or other processes and using them maximizes the lifecycle of the fiber. Depending on how they are harvested, fibers may include flax, bagasse, and hemp.
 
[6]  Coastal temperate rainforests originally covered 0.2% of the planet, and now less than 25% of these forests remain in their original state. We will consider sourcing from areas within the coastal temperate rainforests where credible conservation solutions are finalized. A legal conservation plan is now finalized for the Great Bear Rainforest a region of 6.4 million hectares within the Coastal Temperate Rainforest zone of British Columbia Canada.  On February 1st, 2016 the Government of British Columbia, First Nations, environmental organizations and the forest industry announced an Ecosystem-based Management framework that sets 85% of this region off limits to logging and stringent logging rules in the other 15%. Provided these agreements are fully implemented – sourcing from this ancient and endangered forest region can be considered to be within sustainable levels. We encourage ongoing verification of this through renewal of Forest Stewardship Council certification by the logging tenure holders in the region.
[Note this footnote is key, otherwise the policy would suggest you would not source from this region, despite the conservation agreements in place, which would be a disincentive for forest companies to make these type of conservation agreements in other ancient and endangered forests].
 
[7]Canada’s Boreal Forest contain the largest source of unfrozen freshwater world wide and are part of the world’s largest terrestrial carbon sink – equivalent to 26 years worth of global fossil fuel use. Canopy is committed to working collaboratively on the establishment of new protected areas, the protection of endangered species and the implementation of sustainable harvesting in Canada’s Boreal Forest.
This region is slated for the largest increase in mills for dissolving pulp that goes into cellulose-based fabrics.
 
). APP has recently put in place a promising forest policy, tracking its implementation will be key to understanding if it offers lasting solutions for Indonesia’s Rainforests and also if APRIL (a key producer of dissolving pulp for fabrics) will follow suit.
