Managing Director Sustainability for Asia Pulp & Paper Group (APP), Aida Greenbury, has released the following response to the recent Indonesia-EU timber trade deal:
“We congratulate the Government of Indonesia and the European Union, this is a historic day, as Indonesia becomes the first country in the world to demonstrate its success in tackling illegal logging in building its timber industry through the new FLEGT licences. This is not paperwork, this is real change on the ground and will provide opportunity for thousands of Indonesian and European businesses alike by making it much simpler to import Indonesia’s valuable timber products.
“Now we look forward to working with the Government of Indonesia to build sustainable, successful timber businesses across Indonesia. Indonesia’s FLEGT-licences and the Indonesian SVLK system that underpins them have built capacity and capabilities across Indonesia and form the ideal bedrock to build more sustainable practice. As nations around the world from Japan to Australia look to tackle illegal logging, Indonesia will benefit from major first-mover advantage for buyers looking for legal products”.
