EUDR: Understanding implications for US companies


How will the EUDR impact US-based companies? Join us for a free webinar where our experts will explore the new regulation’s implications, along with an overview of current ESG regulatory trends. 

A new EU law that may affect your business will take effect on December 30, 2024. Are you ready? The EU Deforestation Regulation (EUDR) prohibits companies from selling commodities and products linked with deforestation and forest degradation in the EU beginning December 30, 2024. 

This groundbreaking regulation, the first of many international and country-level regulations of its kind, calls for stricter supply chain due diligence. The law applies to numerous products made from these commodities: cattle, cocoa, coffee, palm oil, soy, rubber and timber. It also includes some derived products like leather, chocolate, furniture, charcoal, printed paper products and some palm oil derivatives.

Take part in this free webinar to hear from our experts about the EUDR and its implications for US-based companies. During this webinar, we will provide an overview of current Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) regulatory trends, EUDR requirements, traceability and transparency challenges, and tangible steps to prepare for the EUDR and similar ESG market and regulatory trends. 

Have a pressing question about the EUDR? Stay until the end of our webinar for our Q&A session where you can pose questions to our panel of experts. 

How to register?

The webinar will take place on Thursday, March 14 from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm EST. Please complete your registration as soon as possible to secure your spot.
