Hau plans, conducts and manages chain-of-custody (i.e. supply chain) audits within the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC™) and the Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) for Preferred by Nature clients in Vietnam.
Consumers can drive the supply chain to a greater level of sustainability by making responsible choices with environmentally friendly products. The sustainable certification schemes are the bridge that enables the producers to meet consumers’ demand and translates the improvement on the field onto the products in the stores. I’m proud to be a part of the wholeness that witnesses, verifies and delivers the messages to the consumers through the certification process. And I very much believe that Preferred by Nature is the shared home to those with identical values to work for nature.
