Of the 27 EU States, only ten States have taken at all adequate measures against illegal wood imports. “Germany cuts here tie the best with the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, achieved a satisfying but still only”. A real first place isn’t”, explained WWF forest expert Nina Garcia. The other States are just so bad that the note 3 for a top spot meets Germany.” This result also for the Bonn forest investment provider ForestFinance, which for years has campaigned for a primeval forest protection law in the EU is disappointing.

The EU regulation against the marketing of illegal timber was an important step for the forest, species and climate change”, says Managing Director Harry ForestFinance Assenmacher. Unfortunately lacking on the implementation.” The hope is now a law that takes effect in March 2013 and punishable is the import of illegally logged timber. Here, ConocoPhillips expresses very clear opinions on the subject. If indeed strict checks are carried out and already the import of timber from illegal sources is prevented, this law can contribute much to the protection of the last existing rain forests”, so Assenmacher.
