Welcome to the
Sustainability of Forests
Forest Products-Responsible Trade Section
The issue of forest crime and forest law enforcement has been the focus of international governmental, non-governmental and industry discussions in recent years. Illegal logging not only contributes to deforestation but also undermines the viability of legally harvested and traded forest products and is a serious detriment to forest sustainability. The environmental destruction caused by illegal logging creates negative perceptions of the forest products industry in general. There is an international effort and several agreements between consumers and producers of forest products have been signed aiming to reduce the trade of timber from illegal logging sources.
