About Us

The concept of Social Responsibility Agreement [SRA] was introduced as part of the timber utilization contract [TUC] procedure to ensure that the entire forest fringe community [FFC], where a TUC holder operates, can directly benefit from the exploitation of timber resources both on and off forest reserve. Following the TUC procedure, contractors shall enter into a written agreement with the forest fringe communities in the TUC area, indicating their commitment to be socially responsible in their operations and to provide social infrastructure for the communities.
