This study identifies the common methods used by wildlife traffickers to launder their money.  It also highlights proposed actions that countries and the private sector can take to combat this trade.  It explains that environmental crime is one of the most profitable criminal enterprises, generating around $110 to $281 billion in criminal gains each year.   It covers a wide range of unlawful activities such as illegal logging, illegal wildlife trade and waste trafficking.  FATF is focussing on the link between environmental crime and money laundering.  This work aims to raise awareness about the financial flows that fuel environmental crime and how they are laundered.
