Responsible farming

Our partner plantations are certified Deforestation-Free by internationally recognized forest certification programs, PEFC and FSC, minimizing environmental impact through responsible rubber tree forest (plantations) management. With our Equitable Ag natural rubber purchase program, we pay significantly higher premiums to the smallholders.

Our natural rubber (raw material) supply chains are PEFC and FSC-certified and both are working with the European Commission to help ensure compliance with the European Deforestation Regulation or EUDR. So, when you purchase Yulex Products, you will be able to know the geo-coordinates or origins of your rubber products and that it does not come from deforested regions.
