FORM Ghana believes in the power of collaboration and stakeholder engagement to promote lasting and empowering social, economic and environmental impact.
Aligned with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), FORM Ghana strongly emphasises social impact and community engagement. Paul Ontoaneyin manages the company's dedicated Environment and Social (E&S) Department, assisted by E&S Officers Bismark Manu Adjei and Evelyn Affreh.
"We regularly meet with community leaders and farmers to discuss their needs and identify and solve problems that fall within the scope of FORM Ghana's agreement with the Forestry Commission", explains Paul.
By involving the Forestry Commission and traditional and community leaders in decision-making, FORM Ghana promotes inclusive and participatory approaches to sustainable development.
"If a problem is beyond the company's control, we liaise with the Forestry Commission, relevant government departments and organisations to facilitate a solution. Maintaining open communication lines fosters transparency, trust, and a sense of ownership and shared responsibility".
