Forests, the lungs of our planet

Deforestation and forest degradation continue at a worrying rate and are contributing significantly to the current loss of biodiversity. Since 1990, an estimated 420 million hectares of forests have been lost through conversion to other uses.

Forests are home to most of the biodiversity of the world's land mass. It follows that the conservation of the world's biodiversity is highly dependent on how people interact with and use the world's forests.

Lightwood, a solution for large-scale reforestation

As the natural forests in Indonesia have declined sharply in recent decades and continue to shrink, finding new sources of wood has become crucial. Lightwood plantations can be part of the solution. By creating diversified and sustainably managed plantations, soil quality and forest health can be improved. In addition, mixed-species plantations using fast-growing tree species can maximize ecosystem services and thus provide timber and other services such as climate change mitigation or freshwater supply.
