      "The Guidelines has the objective of contributing to the sound development of the international economy and society through environmental and social considerations in all projects (hereinafter referred to as “project” or “projects”) subject to lending, equity participation, and guarantee (hereinafter collectively referred to as “funding”) by JBIC. [...] Ecosystem and Biota = Projects must not involve significant conversion or significant degradation of critical natural habitats including critical forests areas; In case the project involves the significant conversion or degradation of natural habitats including natural forests, priority is to be given to the prevention of environmental impact. When this is not possible, appropriate mitigation measures must be established. Evaluation of the impact on natural habitats by the project and consideration for the offset measures should be based on expert opinion; Illegal logging of forests must be avoided. For the projects involving commercial harvest, the project proponents are encouraged to obtain certifications by forest certification systems as a way to ensure prevention of illegal logging."
