Forests around the world are disappearing fast. At the current rate, we risk only having 10% left by 2030. Much of the world’s deforestation is driven by the world’s demand for food, driving people to remove trees to make room for cattle, soy beans, cocoa and palm oil.
Over 100 countries have committed to eradicating deforestation by 2030. The EU has taken one of the first major steps in achieving this goal by publishing a law banning the importation of 7 commodities linked to deforestation
Legislation has been applied on Cattle, soy beans, cocoa, coffee, palm oil, rubber, and timber.
Companies that want to continue to sell these products into the EU or export from the EU need to prove that their products are not linked to deforestation. Traders and agriculture operators won't be allowed to place commodities and products on the Union market nor export them without prior submission of a due diligence statement.
Dimitra offers deforestation certification for farmers, traders, operators and consumer packaged goods companies to ensure every shipment is compliant and meets the regulatory demands.
A combination of satellite analysis, artificial intelligence, blockchain, and mobile technology allows operators to detect deforestation, prove compliance, and reduce the risk of fraud.
