Drax Biomass Inc. (DBI) is committed to implementing and maintaining conformance with the Sustainable Biomass Program (SBP) and the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®). As part of that commitment, DBI is undertaking an evaluation concerning risks associated with the procurement of wood fibre. Part of this process is to solicit and address relevant stakeholder comments.
DBI is seeking comments from stakeholders addressing risks associated with the SBP Standard 1: Feedstock Compliance Standard principles. The stakeholder consultation is a requirement of recertification to the SBP Standard.
The Supply Base Evaluation (SBE) document can be accessed here. Please be specific with feedback. Reference instances during forest management activities where concern for negative impact is relevant, cite sources and indicate the applicable region.
In addition, DBI will undergo regular sustainability systems surveillance external audits of existing facilities August through November 2020.
Comments can be submitted via email during the period spanning July 14th through August 14th, 2020.
