EU Deforestation-free Regulation (EUDR)

The European Due Diligence Regulation on deforestation-free supply chains (EUDR) requires companies to prove that their products come from deforestation-free land. Are you at risk?

What you need to know about the deforestation-free law

  • The EUDR requires companies sourcing coffee, cocoa, palm oil, rubber, soy, beef, and wood commodities (or derivatives) to conduct due diligence on their supply chains to identify, prevent, and mitigate deforestation and forest degradation.  
  • It affects both EU and non-EU companies doing business in the EU with over 500 employees. And eventually also those with 250 employees and a net turnover of EUR 40 million worldwide and more. 
  • Companies must be able to prove “limited assurance” that their supply chains do not contribute to deforestation by October 1st, 2026, and “reasonable assurance” that their supply chains do not contribute to deforestation by October 1st, 2028.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why use BanQu for EUDR compliance?

BanQu’s ability to get you source-level, primary data down to the plot of land and farmer allows you to quickly identify and mitigate any potential deforestation or forest degradation in your sourcing.

How does BanQu help companies with EUDR compliance?

We help our customers with EUDR compliance by defining the data they need to capture and report on, scoping out and mapping their supply chain, implementing BanQu with their upstream suppliers, and providing ongoing customer and product support beyond initial onboarding.

Our supply chain is so complicated, how can BanQu help capture EUDR-compliant data if we don’t even have visibility past our Tier 2 suppliers?

Working with BanQu and using our traceability technology includes project scoping, supply chain mapping, and on-the-ground implementation — so we’ll help you map past your Tier 2 suppliers and have our implementation teams get your upstream all connected to the BanQu system. You will also have a customer success manager assigned to your account to help ensure you’re continually benefitting from BanQu even beyond initial implementation.
