Behind the environmental smoke of Qingfeng paper products

in the hot summer, we will inadvertently wipe the sweat drops on our forehead with paper towels. As a way of modern civilized life, paper and paper products are our daily consumables. Walking into the supermarket, there are a wide range of paper products, which one we should choose really needs some consideration, especially today, when environmental issues are increasingly concerned, Choosing green products has guided consumers' specific actions

recently, Greenpeace, an international environmental protection organization, attacked the app of the paper enterprise golden light group again, accusing it of affecting the living environment of Sumatran tigers in Indonesia, and calling on the public to boycott its Qingfeng and other series of paper products

the reasonable nature of the boycott question

Green Peace summoned the public to boycott the app of golden light group because the forest inhabited by tigers was transformed into pulp and paper forest by app, which led to the extinction of tigers in Sumatra island

however, according to the survey of WWF (World Wide Fund for nature), there are only 3200 wild tigers in the world at present, and the main reason for the rapid decline of tiger numbers is illegal poaching. In the cultural traditions of many regions, people use tiger skin, bones or other parts of the tiger to make medicine, ward off evil spirits, make clothes or as decoration to symbolize identity and prevent the production, sale and use of plastic shopping bags with a thickness of less than 0.025 mm nationwide; In all supermarkets, shopping malls, bazaars and other commodity retail places. Today, more than 90% of the tiger habitat has no tigers

according to the information released by the Indonesian government, Indonesia has a total of 110million hectares of forests, of which 51million hectares are classified as permanent reserves, and the rest are classified as economic forest areas to help more than 220million Indonesian people reduce poverty and promote sustainable economic development. Of the 110million hectares of forests in Indonesia, only 3% (about 3.5 million hectares) can be legally used to plant plantations to provide fiber raw materials for the pulp and paper industry. Among these 3%, app has a planting area of about 1.4 million hectares, of which about 400000 hectares are degraded forests and low-value forests, and the other 1million hectares are bare wasteland

app's public information also shows that the vast majority of its fiber raw materials in Indonesia come from sustainable artificial forests. At the same time, app is making efforts to afforest to increase the forest area of Indonesia. At present, app has planted more than 200million trees every year, and app has also established a number of nature reserves in Indonesia to maintain biodiversity

as we all know, whether it is giant pandas, Tibetan antelopes, or Sumatran tigers, the main reason for the reduction of endangered wildlife is illegal poaching. The way to solve this problem is to need the joint efforts of the government and society to solve the survival and development of the poor while protecting resources. In the accusation against app of golden light group, Greenpeace deliberately ignored the main reason for the reduction of Sumatran tigers, illegal poaching, and even ignored the efforts made by the Indonesian government and app to protect natural forest resources and solve the regional economic development of the poor. It is obviously unfair to directly blame the reduction of Sumatran tigers on app's pulp and paper forest. Why did Greenpeace, which has always regarded itself as fair, make such a biased conclusion? What are the interests behind it

control the voice of environmental protection

over the years, Greenpeace has used this concept of environmental protection to superimpose media hype skills, setting off one environmental storm after another in China, especially the series of attacks on the app of golden light group, which has made the development of this paper enterprise in China twists and turns. Among many Chinese forestry, pulp and paper integrated enterprises, although app has built the most pulp and paper raw material plantations in China, and its pulp and paper plant's main pollutant emission indicators are also leading in China and even the world, it has always been the target of Greenpeace attack. In sharp contrast to Greenpeace's relentless pursuit of app, other world pulp and paper enterprises have rarely become the focus of Greenpeace, and even stora, which ranks higher than app Enso also planted Eucalyptus in China to develop forest pulp paper integration, and Greenpeace has never reported

in 2005, the Greenpeace report accused app of deforestation and afforestation in Yunnan, which made Greenpeace a strategic attempt to have a say in domestic environmental protection. Although not long after that, the Yunnan provincial government organized an expert group to conclude after careful investigation that it was not in Jinguang. However, Greenpeace has successfully controlled the voice of environmental protection in China by framing app as an environmentally unfriendly enterprise, and with the help of media and public attention to events

in 2006, the China Environmental Protection Federation, the most influential local environmental protection NGO in China, carried out an on-site investigation on the app Forest Pulp paper project, and made a positive affirmation and evaluation of app. Perhaps it was the findings of the China Environmental Protection Federation that touched Greenpeace's nerves. Soon, Liao Xiaoyi, a representative of China's non-governmental environmental protection personages, resigned as a director of the China Environmental Protection Federation due to the change in the attitude of the China Environmental Protection Federation towards app, which caused a uproar in the domestic environmental protection community. Greenpeace seized the opportunity of this event and further consolidated its control over China's environmental protection discourse. In 2008, during the environmental protection verification of APP Jindong paper's application for listing, Greenpeace again boycotted with six domestic private NGOs, creating another environmental protection focus event, consolidating and strengthening its position as the No. 1 voice in domestic environmental protection

controlling China's voice in environmental protection is the primary premise for Greenpeace to realize its own interests in China

safeguard the interests of the West

since the reform and opening up, the economic construction speed of China has increased by nearly 10% each year compared with plastic products, while the total growth of China's forest resources in the past 30 years is less than 10%, and the per capita forest resources are less than 1/6 of the world's per capita ownership. The shortage of forest resources seriously restricts China's economic development and even environmental protection, especially the forest resources also bear the responsibility of environmental protection and gas. "It describes how the polymer is inspired by the adhesion of mussel rib. Therefore, the consumption and change of forest resources have also become an international problem, which is of great concern to the public at home and abroad. In recent years, due to China's Fiberboard, density board, furniture manufacturing and pulping, China's plastic machinery enterprises have increased the opening up of emerging markets for extruders in recent years, and the rapid development of papermaking and other industries, China has become a major importer of wood and exporter of wood products, causing the intensification of international trade competition. In 2007, Greenpeace released a report accusing China of being the culprit of illegal timber trading, which immediately pushed China to the forefront of international environmental protection public opinion, seriously affected China's international image, and directly had an adverse impact on China's timber processing industry. The original cost of imports increased, exports decreased, and environmental sanctions clauses for European and American traders increased, among others. Therefore, if we do not take the initiative to cultivate forest resources and solve the contradiction between increasing demand and backward social production, our limited natural forest resources will eventually be exhausted. We have to rely on the resources of other countries, and we have to buy wood and wood resources from the international market at a higher price. At that time, we will face not only resource pressure, but also environmental and ecological pressure

During the Copenhagen conference in 2009, the Chinese government said that it would continue to carry out large-scale conversion of farmland to forests and afforestation, and vigorously increase forest carbon sinks. As the country with the largest artificial afforestation area in the world, China's artificial afforestation area currently reaches 54 million hectares, of which the implementation of the forest pulp paper integration strategy has played a great role in promoting the development of China's artificial forests in recent years. On the same day, Greenpeace released a report in Chinese, accusing golden light group app of destroying natural forests to develop artificial forests, which not only pushed app to the forefront of public opinion again, but also impacted the emission reduction measures proposed by the Chinese government at the Copenhagen conference

from these two actions of Greenpeace, it is not difficult to see that the environmental protection action of Greenpeace has a clear goal, which is directly related to the background of Western interests it represents. The concept of environmental protection it promotes is actually a new means of trade protection for developing countries and competitors, and its purpose is to safeguard the interests of western countries

commercial interest demands

in order to adapt to the economic development situation and meet the market demand, whether active or passive, APP chooses to actively cultivate resources while consuming resources, and uses artificial pulp and paper raw material forests to replace its dependence on natural forest resources. Compared with many paper-making enterprises with small and medium-sized production capacity, the mode selected by app meets the requirements of sustainable development, which should be consistent with the concept of Greenpeace that emphasizes environmental protection, but Greenpeace has never stopped criticizing app

in 2010, the State Forestry Administration launched China's forest certification, and plans to recognize each other with other certification systems in the world to gradually eliminate trade barriers. Industrial and forestry enterprises such as app took the lead in China's forest certification attempt. For Greenpeace, which has long emphasized FSC forest certification, the completion of China's own forest certification system means the loss of Greenpeace and FSC to China's forest product certification market
