ClientEarth response to the UK consultation on forest-risk commodities

Between 3 December 2021 and 11 March 2022 the UK Government held a public consultation on
‘Implementing due diligence on forest risk commodities’. This consultation was carried out to inform the UK Government’s development of secondary legislation to implement Schedule 17 of the Environment Act 2021, adopted in November 2021, which established a framework to ensure that certain forest-risk commodities used in UK commercial activities are not linked to illegal deforestation.

Many of the crucial details that will determine the scope, impact and effectiveness of the Schedule 17 framework will be set in secondary legislation. ClientEarth provided detailed submissions justifying the development of ambitious and robust secondary legislation.
