Botrosa - Ecuador

On 8 March, 2010, allegations of illegal activity against a company that was claimed to hold an FSC forest management (FM) certificate in Ecuador were brought to the attention of FSC through the German FSC National Office.

It had been alleged that the company Botrosa - a part of the Durini Group and a co-owner of the FSC certified FMU ‘Rio Pitzara’ - was involved with two deaths. As well there were concerns related to land use rights in non certified areas.
