The Charcoal Transparency Initiative - CTI

From forest to BBQ...

fleche

La plateforme est destinée à apporter plus de transparence sur l'ensemble de la filière avec deux objectifs principaux :

1.
Etre un canal de communication pour sensibiliser les consommateurs aux enjeux sociaux et environnementaux du charbon de bois et raconter l'histoire des produits.

2.
Connecter tous les acteurs privés liés à la production, le commerce et la livraison de charbon de bois responsable, leur donnant accès à tous les rapports et la documentation Earthworm.

We work with retailers, importers and charcoal producers to help them establish and implement responsible purchasing policies.

Au-delà d'un logo ou d'une certification, nous permettons aux consommateurs d'accéder aux histoires du produit qu'ils achètent.

from the forest to the consumer.

Based on our field experience, responsible charcoal
must meet the following criteria :

- this explains the need for transparency to trace the charcoal back to the origin of the wood.

To be considered responsible, it is essential to know exactly where the wood used to produce the charcoal comes from.

A transparent supply chain, from the forest to the consumer, requires precise identification of each link in this chain.

At the production level, this implies a precise quantification of incoming wood and imported charcoal produced outside of the factory.Transparency is the key to guarantee responsible charcoal.
