We demand deforestation-free products!

Position statement from Civil Society on EU regulation on deforstation-free products

Over 100 civil society organisations from Europe and beyond are calling on the European Parliament and EU Member States to close the loopholes in the proposed European Commission’s regulation to tackle EU-driven global deforestation. The CSO statement, supported by environmental, climate and human rights organisations, outlines key policy asks that must be addressed and included in the proposed law to ensure that the EU regulation is truly fit for purpose and meets the EU’s climate and biodiversity targets as well as the high expectations of EU citizens.

As “Our Food. Our Future” we support the position because we don’t want deforestation in our supermarkets any longer. The current propoosal of the new regulation isn’t bold enough.
