World Forest ID Brochure
Much of what we buy is made from land that should not have been deforested. This is largely because the methods we use to verify where a product comes from are paper-based and open to fraudulent activity.

The extent of corrupt and illegal activities in the forest sector is difficult to document, making it difficult to monitor progress.
