Our deforestation risk assessment tool uses satellite data to monitor key commodity crops (cocoa, palm oil, coffee) to monitor supplier and sourcing areas for compliance.
New legislation means companies now face a due diligence requirement to ensure they are not selling products that have caused deforestation or forest degradation, which will mean monitoring land in countries of origin via satellites and geolocation tracking.
From 31 December 2020 any companies actively sourcing supplies must prove they have not been responsible for any deforestation. We partner with key countries to obtain authoritative data on forest boundaries to ensure precise metrics. We have a strong track record on measuring deforestation in Ghana, Colombia and Mexico with key partnerships in these countries.
