Aidenvironment Insights: Gaps and opportunities in EU deforestation regulation and COP26 pledges

November 2021 has been a month of promises and pledges to safeguard the world’s forests and further prevent carbon emissions from deforestation. Apart from the COP26 collective declaration to halt and reverse forest loss and land degradation by 2030, yesterday the European Commission released a proposal for a regulation on deforestation-free products. The law aims to minimize the risk of deforestation in goods, such as palm oil, soy, beef, wood, and some derived products (leather, chocolate, and furniture) sold in the EU market. Aidenvironment’s work on deforestation-free supply chains highlights massive effort needed to achieve the ambitions of the COP26 deforestation pledge and the EU deforestation regulation.
