Sustainability | Certification | High Conservation Values

The concept of HPV was originally developed by FSC in 1999 and has the goal of preserving or improving the environmental or social values of the forests and other ecosystems as part of responsible forest management.

All forests have environmental and social values that are worth being protected, however, certain values are significantly more important, more valuable, rarer and more vulnerable than others. These are the High Conservation Values (HCV) and they require a greater degree of protection and precaution and therefore additional consultation, management efforts and monitoring to guarantee their long term upkeep.

Forestal Anchile Ltda, has Areas with High Conservation Value within its property and looks to identify new Areas which have these attributes. For this they need the cooperation of their neighbors and local communities (Neighborhood Associations, Indigenous Communities and others) and therefore ask you to inform about any matter than can aide this goal.

If you have any information about this, please contact Forestal Anchile Ltda's Forest Ranger or Supervisor, use the High Conservation Values Evaluation Request Form or simply call us on 064-2453700.

Thank you for your help.
