Innovation alliance for training programmes for deforestation-free supply chains in Europe
Deforestation and degradation in tropical forests are among the leading causes of climate change and biodiversity loss. The European Union contributes to this issue as it is the second-largest importer of forest risk commodities such as soy, palm oil, beef and leather, wood, cocoa, coffee, and rubber. The EU approved the Deforestation-Free Products Regulation (EUDR) to tackle this issue.
The EMMA4EU project will foster EUDR implementation by bridging different disciplines and sectors in forestry, agriculture and business & commerce and connecting their key actors through an alliance. This will enable knowledge exchange and create a new profession: the Deforestation-Free Supply Chains Manager.
Welcome to EMMA4EU, co-funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ Programme. We bring together an alliance committed to addressing commodity-driven deforestation. Focusing on innovation and collaboration, EMMA4EU develops a high-quality training platform for sustainable practices in natural resource use.
