About this initiative

Summary

This initiative aims to present an integrated EU approach to combat deforestation, protect forests and promote sustainable supply chains.

Deforestation is a major global problem, leading to biodiversity loss, climate change and poverty.

The causes are many and complex, though increased production of commodities such as soy, beef, palm oil, coffee, and cocoa drives almost 80% of all deforestation.
