Who is our customer

Miro is one of the largest forestry plantation companies in West Africa, with currently 10,000 ha planted. Miro develops and manages high quality, cost-competitive, FSC certified, fast growing industrial timber species (mainly: eucalyptus/acacia) and is in the process of setting up the respective downstream production facilities and market entries to capture the maximum value of the wood grown.

What is our funding objective?

To finance the company’s planting area expansion and building its processing capacity

Why do we fund this investment?

Risk capital for forestry is very scarce.

What is the Environmental and Social categorization rationale?

Miro is a category B+ client. FMO’s preliminary environmental and social due diligence indicates that the investment will have impacts which must be managed in a manner consistent with the following Performance Standards: - PS 1: Assessment and Management of Environmental and Social Risks and Impacts; - PS 2: Labour and working conditions; - PS 3: Resource Efficiency and Pollution Prevention - PS 4: Community Health, Safety and Security; - PS 5 Land Acquisition and Involuntary Resettlement; - PS 6 Biodiversity Conservation; - PS 8 Cultural Heritage. As there are no Indigenous Peoples affected by the project, therefore PS 7 Indigenous People is not applicable. FMO will periodically review the project’s compliance with the Performance Standards.
