New European and UK Legislation Planned to Address Illegal Deforestation

Both Europe and the UK are currently looking into introducing new legislation that will aim to address the issue of illegal deforestation. These new rules will require a higher level of transparency and traceability in the supply chain, for products and their constituent materials, traded within these regions. The details of the specific requirements are yet to be decided.
