Anna Cavazzini Rosa D’Amato Anna Deparnay-Grunenberg Heidi Hautala Tilly Metz Ville Niinistö Grace O'Sullivan Marie Toussaint

The Commission just adopted a proposal to stop deforestation. But this new deforestation law is all bark and no bite. It continues to threaten biodiversity and ecosystems worldwide, and EU products continue to be complicit in environmental destruction.
