Global Forest Watch Pro is an application for companies and financial institutions to securely manage deforestation risk in commodity supply chains.
Commodities like palm oil, cocoa, beef and soy may change hands dozens of times from the moment they are harvested until they end up in candy bars, toothpaste or baby formula, making deforestation tracking a very complex puzzle. Today, it is finally possible for a company or bank of any size to analyze and manage deforestation risk using GFW Pro.
More than 360 companies committed to eliminate deforestation from their supply chains by 2020. Most are not on track to meet this target, but Global Forest Watch Pro can help.
Global Forest Watch has always been able to tell you where tree cover loss has occurred. Now, in a huge leap, it can tell you why.
Most of the tree cover loss in our sample concession occurred in areas where, using clues from the ground, we can conclude it wasn't illegal deforestation. That doesn't mean it doesn't happen.
Un nuevo informe del World Resources Institute (WRI) muestra que en muchos países, el proceso para formalizar los derechos de la tierra es extremadamente complejo, costoso y lento, y tarda hasta 30 años o más, pero las compañías normalmente pueden asegurarse derechos a largo plazo sobre la tierra desde un plazo de tan solo 30 días a cinco años.
