Delivering on the Promise of ESG With Performance Metrics

At Molpus, we use key performance indicators (KPIs) as metrics to enable us to measure and quantify our progress on ESG. KPIs are divided into three ESG categories: environmental, social, and governance.

Environmental KPIs

Number of Trees Planted

  • Cumulatively, Molpus has planted over 225,000,000 trees since 1998.
  • We planted 17.4 million trees in 2018 and 12.2 million trees in 2019.
  • In 2020, Molpus should be close to reaching the milestone of a quarter billion trees planted.

Acres Under Management

  • Over 1.9 million acres are currently under management; however, this number changes almost daily with GIS line editing, land sales, and acquisitions.

Certified Acres

99.96% of the total acres under management were certified (as of April 2019). Molpus intends to certify management for all timberland properties under the SFI Program (excluding only non-forest types such as mines, admin sites, agriculture leases). We have approximately 400,000 acres carrying a dual certification with both SFI and FSC.
