Introduction to the Teak Files

The Teak Files provide an introduction to the Teakwood investment scheme. This scheme involves WWF, the OHRA/Delta Lloyd insurance and banking group and a Costa Rican teak plantation called Flor y Fauna. The Teak Files provide a luminous insight into the subject of forest management certification and on how certified timber is introduced to the Dutch market.

To save your valuable time on-line, we offer a free teakfiles download service that includes Treemail's book Green Gold. The book provides a full account of the Teakwood case.

A concise analysis of the history of SKAL's EKO-certificate for organic production at Flor y Fauna (in Dutch) is available in an article by Wolter Seuntjens.
