Respect Indigenous rights and customary land use rightsESG Annual Report 2017-18
Indigenous Rights
In some regions where TIG is managing timberland assets, indigenous people are present and often have outstanding
claims of rights to land in the area. Before an asset is acquired, the potential for a claim on the property by indigenous
people is considered on 100% of the properties. For those properties located in regions with recognized indigenous
populations, the history and potential for claims to assets by the community is diligently examined in the title search.
Pre-Acquisition Traditional Community Check (Brazil KPI)
In Brazil, in addition to indigenous populations, descendants of escaped slaves often reside in communities known
as quilombolas. The quilombolas frequently have claim to rights over assets near their communities. Acquisition due
diligence within Brazil requires a third-party examination of the potential for claims by both indigenous communities
and quilombolas for 100% of the properties purchased.
The text, which is not a policy but from an ESG report, only requires the bank to check if there are indigenous or quilobola communities. It does not guarantee their rights to land.partly

Service providers must comply with all applicable laws related to ESG and TIG also expects service providers to develop
training programs focused on enhancing suppliers’ qualifications and workforce competency. When possible, local
suppliers should be hired as a means to positively impact local communities.
