KOLTIVA launches EUDR solutions
JAKARTA (IndoTelko) - KOLTIVA has launched its groundbreaking EUDR Solutions.

These solutions are tailored for businesses seeking EUDR compliance, which mandates rigorous Due Diligence.

This process includes extensive Data Collection on product origins, including specific geolocation data, ensuring products are deforestation-free and compliant with local laws. Risk assessments consider factors like country risk levels and forest presence.

Additionally, businesses are required to implement Risk Mitigation measures such as audits and supplier support. Finally, the Regulation necessitates annual public reporting on due diligence systems and maintaining related documentation for at least five years.

In response to regulatory pressures, KOLTIVA expanded its solutions to assist businesses through a modular approach based on its KoltiTrace MIS (Management Information System).

This robust producer mapping and traceability platform offers a scalable solution for independent suppliers to meet the forthcoming EUDR regulations. Additionally, KOLTIVA's extension services, KoltiSkills, also provide solutions for processors and manufacturers needing more field staff or third-party assistance.

These services include sustainable supply chain mapping, transactional traceability support, and risk mitigation services in the field. The latest addition to KOLTIVA's modular approach for EUDR solutions is Data Verification.

This solution enables manufacturers to independently verify their supply chain data for suppliers using another platform solution, or KoltiTrace, for supply chain mapping without utilizing KoltiSkills services. Data is evaluated based on completeness, quality, and EUDR compliance. Sample verification visits are available upon request.

Manfred Borer, CEO and Co-Founder of KOLTIVA, discussed the EUDR compliance journey in a recent conversation, stating, “We view that the EUDR is more than a regulation; it’s a mission, a key element of the European Green Deal, driving climate neutrality by 2050. By adhering to the regulation, businesses contribute to the global fight against deforestation, a significant factor in climate change and biodiversity loss. With the deadline approaching in less than a year, we reaffirm our commitment to assisting businesses in achieving compliance. We stand ready to provide expertise, technology, and services to ensure regulatory adherence while concurrently fostering a sustainable future."

Borer stated, "Today signifies a significant milestone in our journey towards a greener, more sustainable future. With the launch of our state-of-the-art EUDR solutions, KOLTIVA is fully committed to helping businesses comply with and combat deforestation with our dependable and adaptable modular methods that go beyond traceability. We're empowering businesses with essential tools to effortlessly navigate EU regulations on deforestation, utilizing our robust traceability platform, KoltiTrace, extension services for sustainable sourcing through KoltiSkills, and expert solutions for comprehensive EUDR analysis reports, Data Verification."

The regulation mandates compliance from over 50,000 businesses that import or process any of the key seven commodities, including Palm Oil, Cocoa, Coffee, Rubber, Wood, Soy, Cattle, and derivatives such as leather and furniture. Additionally, non-EU companies heavily involved in EU activities are required to adhere to these regulations. KOLTIVA is committed to support meticulous compliance process from supply chain mapping & risk assessment, verifying supply chains connections, training and monitoring, deforestation mapping, risk mitigation, to the due diligence report.

KoltiTrace MIS platform enables processors with Supply Chain Mapping and Risk Assessment, ensuring comprehensive producer compliance. It streamlines recording supply chain connections and offers expert field implementation support for businesses lacking resources. To ensure traceable transactions, KOLTIVA Verifies Supply Chain Connections from plantations to processors, collaborates with local stakeholders (dealers, agents, collectors) to document traceability by registering transactions from mapped farmers. KOLTIVA reviews transactional data to identify new and mapped farmers within supply chains.

Segregation Training and Monitoring play a vital role in EUDR compliance. Koltiva’s Field Agent Business Support (FABS) offers training and monitoring at the dealer level to ensure proper implementation, compliance, risk mitigation, and transparency. Koltiva’s remote sensing expertise and robust traceability platform and Deforestation Maps provide historical data on tree cover loss, enabling in-depth analysis and enhancing the accuracy of deforestation detection and monitoring.

KOLTIVA provides Risk Mitigation initiatives, such as personalized farmer coaching and support in obtaining land legality. Through data-driven one-on-one coaching, it focuses on EUDR non-compliant or flagged farmers, guiding farm development plans and accelerating the adoption of Good Agricultural Practices (GAP).

Due diligence is integral to EUDR compliance, which the KoltiTrace platform streamlines by automatically generating due diligence statements for processors and their main suppliers. These tools provide evidence for compliance submissions, guaranteeing transparency and accountability across the supply chain.(es)
