News and insights from Lestari Capital
The Nanga Lauk Village Forest – Rimbak Pakai Pengidup/Forest for Life – supports a huge diversity of plant and animal species, many of which are threatened with extinction. The area is within the Heart of Borneo region, identified as a priority for Biodiversity Conservation because of the exceptional diversity of species it supports, and the high levels of threat they face from deforestation and forest degradation.
Our partners at Landscapes Indonesia and CIFOR have developed a new publication defining the considerable and growing risks of unsustainable palm oil to producers, and consequently to the financial institutions supporting them. The report also demonstrates the clear economic benefits to all stakeholders of producing palm oil in a sustainable manner, and is a call to action for Indonesian banks.
