Track & Trace® Standard
Enviva has developed the Track & Trace® Standard with the guidance from Preferred by Nature. The Standard includes 10 core areas to which we are audited annually, the most central of which are data collection and verification. The Standard requires that specific systems are put into place to collect, monitor, and verify data to ensure its accuracy.
We employ desk and field-based monitoring of our data, to ensure specific variables are reaffirmed.
We have chosen Preferred by Nature as our independent verifier of our Track & Trace program. Preferred by Nature is an international non-profit organization with over 25 years of experience in auditing sustainable forestry and traceability standards. To learn more about their work, please visit their website.
For the first time, Enviva was audited to the Standard in a review of the 1H2021 data that we have disclosed on our website. Preferred by Nature’s auditors visited three Enviva facilities and visited active and harvested tracts, and interviewed staff and suppliers that are key in the data collection and verification process. The audit consisted of an evaluation of T&T data collection, monitoring, and verification systems, with a sampling of mills and tracts.
To maintain transparency in our processes, we are pleased to provide the full audit report for review.
As a part of our Standard, we welcome input and feedback from our stakeholders. If you have Track & Trace-related feedback, please submit it in writing to our Raleigh office, or in writing via email to TrackandTrace@envivabiomass.com.
