Exclusive Briefing on voters’ attitudes towards the EU Deforestation-Free Law
On behalf of consumer associations across Europe, we are writing to invite you to an exclusive Insight Briefing on the EU Deforestation-free Law Opinion Poll 2022 next Monday 5th September.

The EU poll shows that public support for the upcoming EU Deforestation-Free Law is more than twice the support for EU regulations in general. In fact, the survey finds that 8 in 10 Europeans support the deforestation-free law (81%) while 3 in 10 claim to support EU laws in general (32%).

This support is strongest among those over 45, whose turnout in elections is the highest.

On September 13th, 2022, the European Parliament will vote in plenary on the Deforestation-Free Law. If adopted with ambition, this new law will be a game-changer in curbing deforestation and guaranteeing to EU citizens that they can shop without fuelling the destruction of the world’s remaining forests.*

Ahead of this crucial vote, a broad coalition of consumer associations and conservation organisations have commissioned research firm GlobeScan to survey 9,000 voters in Austria, Czech Republic, France, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Germany, Spain and Sweden to gauge their views towards deforestation, their expectations, and their support for the new EU law.

Join us for a 45-minute exclusive briefing on these survey results on Monday, September 5th at 2pm Brussels time.

This briefing will give you an opportunity to access public opinion data, better understand voters’ attitudes towards the upcoming EU law and discuss with consumer groups about their views on deforestation-linked consumer goods.

We hope you can join this insights session.

* A previous EU poll by YouGov shows that voters intend to reward those that support this legislation.
