The Indone­sian Eco­la­belling Insti­tute (LEI-Lembaga Eko­la­bel Indone­sia) is a non-profit constituent based orga­ni­za­tion that devel­ops for­est cer­ti­fi­ca­tion sys­tems that pro­mote our mission of just and sus­tain­able for­est resource man­age­ment in Indone­sia. As a con­stituent based orga­ni­za­tion LEI retains inde­pen­dence and trans­parency, both nec­es­sary for the cred­i­bil­ity of for­est certification. LEI’s cer­ti­fi­ca­tion includes schemes for: -Nat­ural for­est cer­ti­fi­ca­tion -Plan­ta­tion for­est cer­ti­fi­ca­tion -Com­mu­nity for­est cer­ti­fi­ca­tion -Chain of Cus­tody (COC), a log track­ing sys­tem for indus­tries that process for­est prod­ucts such -fur­ni­ture, ply­wood, sawn wood and pulp and paper. LEI has 4 (four) cham­bers that rep­re­sents Indone­sian for­est stake­hold­ers that sup­port LEI in using cer­ti­fi­ca­tion as a tool in achiev­ing sus­tain­able for­est man­age­ment: -Busi­ness Cham­ber. -Tra­di­tional com­mu­nity and for­est farmer Cham­ber -NGOs Cham­ber. -Emi­nent Per­son Cham­ber.   MISSION To develop for­est cer­ti­fi­ca­tion schemes and mon­i­tor­ing sys­tems for natural resource man­agement. To pro­mote and sup­port just and sus­tain­able nat­ural resource man­agement in Indone­sia. To sup­port multi-stakeholder nat­ural resource man­age­ment mod­els that include par­tic­i­pa­tion of indige­nous com­mu­ni­ties.   2009-13 PROGRAMSI. Mar­ket Recog­ni­tion. 1.

Devel­op­ing a Cred­i­ble, Trans­par­ent, and Impar­tial Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Sys­tem. 1.
