Episode 59: The global perspective on EUDR, Getting granular on EUDR (episode 3 of 3)
This episode is 3 of 3 recorded live at the FSC event Wood you find it in Brussels on April 25th 2023.
At the event EU policymakers, NGOs, companies, voluntary sustainability standards, representatives from producing countries, EU Competent Authorities, the forest sector, and journalists met to learn, discover, debate and imagine together a world in which we know exactly where every piece of wood comes from.
The event was built around a brand new piece of EU legislation: the European deforestation regulation (EUDR). The focus was on how EUDR and its geo-location requirement can play a role in the wood sector taking into account the environmental, economic, social dimension of the matter, both in Europe and globally.
In this last episode we will be looking into what the legislation looks like from the other side of the table – from the producing countries who will need to support European buyers with their compliance to the legislation. We will be hearing from Alexandra Benjamin, FERN, Chantal Marijnissen, EU Commission, Gert van der Bijl, Solidaridad & Escipion Joaquin Oliveira Gomez, OACPS. And we will get closing remarks from Kim Carstensen, CEO of FSC.
