The EU is banning the importation of the following products when they are linked to deforestation: Palm oil, cattle, soy, coffee, cocoa, timber, rubber, beef, paper, chocolate, and furniture. The new regulation requires that products cannot be imported into Europe if they have been sourced from a farm that has been involved in deforestation after December 2020. So what does this mean? Consumer goods companies, importers, and farmers need to certify their compliance with these new laws to continue to trade into the EU.
Dimitra offers a Deforestation Certification Module making deforestation assessment accessible to companies proving their compliance with the new regulations.
Using satellite and machine learning, the platform detects whether or not a plot of land was deforested and generates a certificate of compliance written to the blockchain. GPS Track and trace is required to prove compliance with the new EU regulations by being able to show that the product was registered and came directly from the farm.

Dimitra receives a deforestation certificate request from a customer, We take a payment for the request in fiat, we pay the necessary government filing fees in fiat. The balance is immediately converted by our treasury in DMTR to generate the certificate and process the relevant transactions to the blockchain via the Dimitra DApp. Then we burn the tokens, recording the entire process on our blockchain based platform for compliance.
Supply chains sending these products to Europe are at risk. Many of the listed commodities entering the EU can be traced back to deforestation. Before the law is put into full effect, operators need to assess the level of risk they are in by understanding the prevalence of deforestation in the areas their products come from.
