The recent adoption of the EU Deforestation Regulation (EUDR) by the European Parliament sets mandatory due diligence requirements for the placing of soy, beef, palm oil, wood, cacao, and coffee on the EU market by ensuring they are deforestation-free and produced in accordance with the laws of the country of origin. However, the legislation has caused some uncertainty for many businesses and individuals in the industry.
In our newsletters from 11 August 2022 and 14 October 2022 we have already shared ISCC’s stance on the European Commission’s (EC) proposal for a regulation on deforestation-free products. ISCC is currently developing a solution for assessing risks and contributing to compliance with the EU Deforestation Regulation in the framework of a dedicated ISCC Add-on. We will inform our system users about the developments in due time and will provide further information in a dedicated webinar. As a trusted partner to our clients, we are committed to providing the guidance they need to implement traceability and deforestation-free solutions along their supply chains.
