China’s revised forest law could boost efforts to fight illegal logging

April 3, 2020 EcoVadis ‏‏‎


On December 28, 2019, Chinese legislators revised the country’s Forest Law to ban “purchase, process or transport” of illegal logs.
China is the world’s largest importer of legal and illegal timber, and if the change is enforced it could boost efforts to fight the illegal logging trade.
Advocates say that the true measure of the changes will be how they are implemented and enforced.
