Built on Lies: New Homes in Japan Destroy Old Forests in Europe

Since arriving in Romania in 2002, Holzindustrie Schweighofer, an Austrian-owned timber and wood processing company, has incentivized illegal logging through its sourcing policies.

This new EIA report highlights the outsized role of Japanese companies and consumers in fueling illegal logging in Romania, via Holzindustrie Schweighofer. The Japanese government has a responsibility to ensure that all companies are required to proactively ensure legal sourcing of wood product imports.
