FEFAC position on deforestation

FEFAC has published its position on deforestation.

In its position on deforestation ((18) PR 12), FEFAC welcomes the analysis by the European Commission in the Feasibility Study on options to step up EU action against deforestation, highlighting the added value of integrating jurisdictional landscape approaches with supply chain initiatives. FEFAC shares the study’s finding that supply chain initiatives alone cannot tackle the complexity of implementing zero-deforestation objectives, triggering the need for interaction between governments and other stakeholders at different levels to invest in effective implementation of national environmental legislation and relevant supply chain initiatives.
