The 'S' Files

The first in an EIA series of short films, Ghost Trucks reveals that Holzindustrie Schweighofer, the largest timber company in Romania, is still receiving illegal wood, more than one year after EIA first exposed the company of accepting and incentivizing illegally harvested timber.

Un-Natural Parks, the second in EIA's 'S' Files series, shows that Holzindustrie Schweighofer is sourcing timber from Romania's natural parks.

In Depot Deception, EIA exposes Holzindustrie Schweighofer suppliers of systematically laundering logs through real and fictitious logging depots to obscure the timber’s forest origins.
