Collection: EU Bans Illegal Timber (Media Release)

GP023WU
The European Parliament today voted overwhelmingly in favour of a law banning illegal timber from the world’s biggest market. Europe uses huge volumes of illegal timber, mainly from countries with weak governance where corporate criminals and mafia gangs cause great environmental damage, rob governments of revenue and have even fuelled civil war.
Since launching its campaign to eliminate illegal logging a decade ago, scores of Greenpeace activists have put their lives at risk to blockade ports, halt wood shipments and go undercover to expose illegal logging in the Amazon, Central Africa, Russia and South-East Asia.
