Supporting Legal Timber Trade – Ecolor


My name is Cristian Holobuic and I’m managing the sustainability policy in Ecolor and the related supply chain. We are a furniture producer for IKEA located in Cluj the central part of Transylvania. The EU Timber Regulation helped us map our supply chain and secure that all the legal demands are met During the development of the due diligence system we have identified our full supply chain. The difficult part was to link the traceability to the forest itself I used the NEPCon Sourcing Hub to get information and create the risk assessment for China. The NEPCon Sourcing Hub provided me the information to identify the list of legal requirements to import goods from China. We have developed our due diligence system for this specific handle and use the NEPCon Sourcing Hub to get the information about legal documentation needed to import goods from China. The due diligence system implementation in our company helped us develop an overview about the legal demands of the wood purchase. The decision taking is much easier when you have the due diligence system implemented.
