EUTR due diligence support for Sky

Working with the media company Sky, Efeca carried out an EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) Due Diligence Risk Assessment on a selection of packaging products. Efeca reviewed the information provided by suppliers for several packaging products, conducted a risk assessment, and provided recommendations for mitigation activities for Sky to consider.

The EUTR requires companies and their suppliers to ensure compliance of wood-based packaging. Compliance obligations depend on which company has placed the material on the market in the EC. For packaging imported into the EU for use in any EU-based operations, companies must ensure full compliance with EUTR Due Diligence System (DDS) requirements if it is the first time the packing has been placed on the EU market.

Efeca is able to provide tailored consulting advice on issues relating to responsible sourcing, sustainable trade and use of natural resources. As a consortium partner, Efeca helped to deliver the European Commission project ‘Reviewing the Implementation of the EU Timber Regulation for the EC’, and has provided support in this area to large multinational companies such as Kingfisher, Unilever and Samsung Electronics.
