The government is seeking views ahead of secondary legislation to implement due diligence in UK supply chains to tackle illegal deforestation. This consultation closes at 11:45pm on 11 March 2022.
They want to know your views on implementing Environment Act provisions to tackle the use of illegally-produced ‘forest risk’ commodities in UK supply chains. The Environment Act will make it illegal for large businesses in the UK to use forest risk commodities produced on land illegally occupied or used. Secondary legislation is needed to implement these Environment Act provisions, and we are seeking views to inform the design of this legislation and accompanying guidance.
