The Swedish Forest Industries Federation (SFIF) has welcomed the EU Parliament’s approval of the proposed Nature Restoration Law.
SFIF says this incorporated several important improvements, including deletion the non-deterioration requirement in particular.
The Federation also welcomes the vote to approve the proposed draft of the law.
This “includes substantial amendments to minimise negative impacts of the plans on other policy areas, in particular forestry and bioeconomy.”
SFIF, in a statement, said that it maintains its previously stated position of welcoming the law’s stated aim of restoring damaged ecosystems and see this as an important step towards a more functional legislation.
The organisation has now called for “a constructive” trilogue to take into account concerns voiced throughout the policy process.
In particular this should consider concerns from those EU Member States that are set to face the most acute negative impacts from the legislation.
