What does not work?

  • Buying tropical timber products with non-independent, false or dodgy certifications or other claims - Provides no sustainability guarantees, and in fact greenwashing of business as usual will lead to continued deforestation and confuses the consumer.
  • Avoiding buying tropical wood products because it undermines the economic values of the rainforests, and the forest will be converted to other land uses, like biofuels plantations, large scale agriculture, cattle ranches etc.
