Grupo Fortaleza is a certified plantation group that was organized under the prestigious international Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), which documents sustainable forest management. Certification was carried out by Rainforest Alliance, an equally respected independent global unit.

Grupo Fortaleza “FSC” is not a company, but a technical tool for cooperation between the independent natural latex and rubber producing plantations. Its purpose is to transmit the benefit of the best practices associated to sustainable forestry, to consumers that have designed the value of a balance in social, environmental and business results into their marketing plan.

Grupo Fortaleza has been certified carbon neutral, having quantified its carbon footprint and determined that its production, processing, transportation and logistics activities emit less carbon dioxide compared to carbon dioxide fixation in its forest plantations, causing the products that it markets are carbon positive.
