On October 25, North Sweden are together with North Norway European Office, East & North Finland, and NSPA, Northern Sparsely Populated Areas, hosting a hybrid seminar on the deforestation regulation adopted in June 2023. The purpose of the seminar is to discuss the implications of the legislation. The seminar will take place both online and in Brussels, where the deadline for registration is October 23.
Member States will have until 2025 to implement the regulation and for those who trade in forest products, the regulation could be extensive. NSPA represents some of the most forest-rich regions in Europe and therefore wants to bring together EU policymakers and bioeconomy stakeholders to discuss the implications of the legislation.
The seminar is moderated by North Sweden’s project manager in bioeconomy, Carina Christiansen. Together with a panel av experts the seminar aims to address questions such as:
- What challenges may arise during the implementation of this regulation?
- What are the key elements to apply to the business to meet the requirements?
- How could the regulation affect the development of the bioeconomy and the circular economy in Europe?
