WWF Hosts Indonesia Pulp & Paper Roundtable
On April 10, 2008 WWF, along with ForestEthics, the Environmental Paper Network, and Green Press Initiative, hosted a Roundtable for investors and buyers of pulp and paper from Indonesia. Company representatives from the office supply, retail, consumer products and paper manufacturing and distribution, printing, magazine, catalog, book and financial services sectors attended to hear presentations given by experts from Indonesia, academia and the non-governmental organization (NGO) community. Topics covered Indonesian forest policy and governance, trade initiatives and policy, deforestation, climate change and biodiversity loss, supply chain tracking and transparency, illegal logging and human rights, conservation science and best practices and sustainable business approaches.
