AHEC-ATIBT Conference: American & Tropical Hardwoods: Meeting EUDR Challenges

This conference, co-organized by ATIBT and AHEC at the Carrefour International du Bois in Nantes, will explore how two key wood supply regions—US smallholder-managed forests and tropical forests—are preparing to meet EU Deforestation Regulation (EUDR) requirements. AHEC will present the Sustainable Hardwood Coalition (SHC) initiative, which aims to comply with this new regulation, and ATIBT will explain how certified tropical timber from the Congo Basin meets the main challenges of the EUDR.

After an introduction to the EUDR and its challenges, and presentations on the forestry contexts of these two regions, the first session will focus on ensuring zero deforestation and legality, discussing sustainable forest management and the regulatory context in the US and the Congo Basin. The second session will cover traceability and due diligence, addressing geolocation data and supply chain compliance. Each session will feature representatives and members from AHEC and ATIBT and will conclude with a Q&A sessions, allowing for in-depth discussions and sharing of best practices.

  • The second panel will present tools and solutions to assist in meeting the requirements, within the framework of due diligence.

Discussions will cover zero deforestation verification, legality, geolocation data collection, supply chain analysis, and data transmission. This conference will offer professionals practical information and strategies to prepare for upcoming regulatory changes and strengthen the wood sector's commitment to sustainability and forest protection worldwide.
