Fires, clear-cutting, illegal and unsustainable logging and deforestation
are putting forests and other vital ecosystems like grasslands and peatlands at risk.
This devastation of nature is happening fast - and it is directly connected to the meat, dairy, palm oil, coffee and chocolate we eat in Europe. From the Amazon to the Asian rainforests, the EU is responsible for more than 10% of global forest destruction.
You can help! WWF, along with 100+ NGOs have launched the #Together4Forests campaign
with a petition that will allow you to quickly and easily participate in a public consultation
on EU action to tackle the EU's forest destruction footprint. By taking part you are directly asking the European Commission for a new, strong law to protect forests and nature around the world, as well as the human rights of Indigenous Peoples and local communities who depend on forests.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to ask for a strong EU law to stop products and investments linked to deforestation and ecosystem devastation from reaching our shop shelves. We want our products to be sustainable and not harmful to our planet and people.
Have your say!
