The Tanoto Forestry Information Center (TFIC) was officially launched on 21 Dec 2015. It aims to be a knowledge hub for forestry management and science, and represents one of many contributions made by RGE Chairman and Tanoto Foundation founder Sukanto Tanoto to the community and industry.

Mr Tanoto said, "The forestry industry is crucial to Indonesia’s economy. To improve the sector’s contribution, Indonesia needs people knowledgeable in forestry. These are the people who can use and develop applicable knowledge. We hope the Tanoto Forestry Information Center will produce prominent scientists and practitioners of sustainable forestry at the national and international levels."
