Following the launch of our Timber report – Supply Chain Traceability: A Spotlight on Timber – we hosted a webinar with Chloé Viala from Preferred by Nature, Oliver Cupit from ZSL SPOTT and David Coleman from iov42.
The report revealed the results from our survey of over 250 Timber Importers across the UK, Italy, France, Belgium and Austria where we asked questions around readiness for incoming regulation (namely European Union Deforestation Regulation (EUDR)), and attitudes towards traceability solutions.
In this webinar we discussed the survey findings further and our experts explained why we think it is that Timber Importers are behind, or hesitant to adopt traceability solutions to meet (existing) and incoming due diligence requirements.
