After only 18 months of creating a group scheme for charcoal producers in Namibia, CMO has secured over 80% of the FSC certified area in the country and has added 115 charcoal producing members to the scheme. The total certified area under the CMO certificate exceeds 500 000ha and growing by the day. To maintain credibility of such a fast-growing scheme, CMO has developed and now successfully implemented a software system to control all key aspects related to compliance to the FSC standards. Our software has been well received by the resource managers and farmers alike. One key aspect is that all audits are now completed on mobile devices and open Corrective Action Requests are monitored and flagged for follow-up through an automated process. CMO is proud of this unique product and what it brings to the table for group schemes in the future.
