The European Union Timber Regulation aims to prevent illegally logged timber from being placed on the EU market. The EU is a significant market for timber, some of which is illegal. This illegal trade contributes to deforestation and environmental degradation, promotes corruption and increases the poverty of people who depend on forests.
