Climate change, raging forest fires, and sprawling agriculture are wiping out our planet’s forests, savannahs and other precious ecosystems.

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. 

Your local milk could come from cows fed on soy from land once covered in spectacular forests. The cookies you love may contain unsustainable palm oil or cocoa cultivated on land snatched from Indigenous Peoples.

The EU has the power to help stop this destruction: It can do this by passing a new law that would stop products linked to the destruction of nature from ending up on the EU’s supermarket shelves.

Through the #Together4Forests campaign, more than 1 million people demanded a strong, new EU law to protect the world’s forests and other ecosystems, and fed straight into the European Commission’s public consultation on deforestation. These were handed over to the European Commission on Monday 14 December in an online event. Hear what Executive Vice-President Frans Timmermans, Executive Vice-President for the European Green Deal, and Commissioner Virginijus Sinkevičius, EU Commissioner for Environment, Oceans and Fisheries had to say in the video below. 

We thank each and every one of you for your support - together, you sent a powerful message: It’s time for the EU to stop being part of the problem, and become part of the solution.

We will be there every step of the way to ensure the EU follows through and comes up with a strong, ambitious legislative proposal in 2021 - watch this space!
