"The European Commission has just released their proposed EU law to restrict products linked to deforestation from entering the EU. This is a watershed moment in the battle to end Europe's major role in destroying the world's forests. After decades of trusting companies to tackle the problem voluntarily, regulation is finally on the cards. There are many potential pitfalls, however, and NGOs are clear that the proposal is not yet strong enough to protect forests and the rights of people living in them," - information is taken from Fern NGO.
