Webinar: Money Laundering from Environmental Crime

Illegal logging, land-clearing, mining and waste dumping generates tens of billions of dollars in proceeds, which are laundered each year into the global financial system. Law enforcement and environmental agencies, as well as banks, lenders and other financial institutions, often do not understand their exposure to this type of financial crime.

An FATF webinar brings together panelists from civil society, private and public sectors to discuss how to fix the gaps in our systems to protect the environment and preserve the world’s natural resources.

The panel discussed important aspects of the FATF Report, including how to identify red-flag information to help detect and trace the illicit finances of criminals engaged in environmental crimes. Participants also debated how to overcome challenges, such as the lack of governmental or institutional prioritisation, limited awareness and data, de-risking, and limited domestic and international co-ordination.
