Timber Due Diligence system and the EUTR

The EU Timber Regulation, or EUTR, was designed to reduce illegal logging by making sure that illegal timber and timber products can't be sold on the EU market. The Timber Due Diligence system, developed by ChainPoint, helps NEXT meet the due diligence requirements as stated by the EUTR.

‘’Chainpoint’s experience of software development, providing visibility and traceability of multiple supply chains, allowed NEXT to successfully create our platform within a short timeframe to ensure continued delivery of our Timber Policy.’’
