...increase the value of natural forests, making them worth more alive than dead.

The forestry and manufacturing team of Jensen Leisure Furniture was recently invited to present their Wood For a World of Difference™ forest campaign to Prince Charles’ Rainforest Project. Attending the meeting at the royal residence Clarence House at St. James Palace in central London were Jack Gibbs, Director of the Prince’s Rainforest Project, Francisco Roda, President of CIMAL/IMR, Ltd., of the Roda Group (the forestry and manufacturing company of Jensen Leisure Furniture), Hlodver Olafsson, Managing Director of CIMAL/IMR, Ltd., and Robert Simeone, Chief Forester of Jensen Leisure Furniture. The two-hour discussion centered around the central theme of the Prince’s Rainforest Project: strategies to increase the value of natural forests, making them “worth more alive than dead.”

Jensen Leisure Furniture and the Roda Group have been internationally recognized by the Rainforest Alliance and others for its efforts in sustainable forest management and as a leader in Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified forest management in Bolivia. Jensen Leisure Furniture’s collection of garden furniture is made from 100% FSC-certified Ipe timber.
