SYDNEY, June 4, 2018 (news.com.au) -The main global group for certifying sustainable wood has sent a "come clean" ultimatum to one of the world's largest paper companies and its billionaire Indonesian family owners following evidence it continues to cut down tropical forests and operate through corporate proxies.

A May 28 letter from the Forest Stewardship Council seen by The Associated Press makes four demands of Sinarmas and the Widjaja family that it insists must be met within days.

The conglomerate's years long effort to be readmitted to the council, whose stylized tree mark is an influential endorsement in the global marketplace, could be completely undone if it doesn't comply.
