Open letter on future Regulatory framework for Deforestation-free supply chains

On 2 November 2022, a group of EU associations sent an open letter (22_PR_22) to members at EU institutions to highlight their common concerns as regards the future regulatory framework for deforestation-free supply chains. The organisations point to the obstacles caused by the geolocation requirement, the need for commodity-specific guidelines, strong partnerships with producing countries & the industry, and an adequate implementation time, including more time for smallholders to comply with the geolocation to plot requirement.
