EU Regulation on Deforestation-Free Products: Reference Document for Cocoa Producers and Importers

In this reference document, Proforest synthesises existing best practices and tools for conducting supply chain Deforestation Due Diligence in the cocoa sector and identifies key unanswered questions for regulators and companies. Throughout the document, potential negative impacts of Deforestation Due Diligence regulations are identified, and best practices to avoid them are discussed. This guidance does not focus on a specific Deforestation Due Diligence regulation but mostly contains references to the EU DDD proposed regulation, as it is the most developed and complete example.

Guidance objectives:

  • Introduce the main operational steps anticipated for cocoa importers, exporters, and producers in a Deforestation Due Diligence system
  • Present existing approaches and tools that can be used to support companies with the Deforestation Due Diligence process.
