Status of taxes and royalties to which Rougier Gabon is subject (year 2018)

In 2018, 100% of our production is legal and has followed FSC principles. The high standards we respect ensure that the rainforest will not undergo irreversible change; that the rights of our employees are respected and that local communities will be informed and consulted. We ask our suppliers to follow the same approach. It is with this in mind that CFAF 7 billion was spent on salaries and social benefits (including $ 1.4 billion for social security contributions), over $ 14 billion from our local suppliers in Gabon, and that we declared nearly 2.4 billion taxes (of which more than 1.7 billion from the Gabonese tax authorities).
