Commissioned by the European Sustainable Tropical Timber Coalition (STTC), this report builds upon 2019 and 2020 studies that explored European imports of certified primary and secondary tropical timber respectively. Combining analysis of both primary and secondary tropical timber imports, this study also provides supplementary data and ground-level surveys to provide additional insights. The report analyzes 2020, a landmark year for private and public sector sustainability commitments and the goalpost the STTC set for reaching a 50% certification target for EU27+UK tropical timber imports. It lays out the playing field for redoubling efforts to drive sustainability in the tropical timber industry.
