In this webinar, we'll explore the new EU regulations affecting wood industry operators and shed light on their practical implications.

The operating environment of the wood industry is in constant transition and once again there are tightening EU-level  regulations that affect the entire value chain of the wood industry, from the forest to the planed panel. There are still loads of open questions on how these regulations will be implemented on a country level, but in the webinar, you will get the latest information on how regulations affect the wood industry in general, and how to best react to them.

EUDR, also known as the EU deforestation regulation, came into effect in June 2023 and must be implemented by the end of 2024, while CSRD, the EU's new corporate sustainability reporting directive, will be implemented between 2024 and 2028 depending on the size and activities of the company. ESRS, the European sustainability reporting standards, on the other hand, guide compliance with CSRD requirements.

At the event, you will get answers to the following questios, among others:

  • What are the deforestation regulation, corporate sustainability reporting directive, and sustainability reporting standards all about?
  • What should be taken into account and how do they practically affect operators in the wood industry – what kind of tightenings, for example, are coming to the chain of custody/supply chain traceability?
  • How to deal with the tightening regulations?


For whom is the webinar suitable?

This event is particularly relevant for those working in the wood industry in management, operations, production or further processing. However, it's also beneficial for anyone interested in the impact of EU regulations on the wood industry.
