Factsheet on the EU Deforestation Regulation (EUDR)

What is the law?

The EU ‘Regulation on deforestation-free products’ (‘EUDR’) is a pivotal legislation within the broader canvas of the EU Green Deal, building on the momentum of recently passed sustainability-focused legislations like the EU Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive and conflict mineral regulations. The regulation came into effect in June 2023 and aims at combating deforestation and forest degradation by reducing the EU contribution to consumption of palm oil, coffee, cocoa, soy, rubber, wood and cattle - commodities linked with high rates of global deforestation.
