Abstract

06 June 2016 | London, England | A new report from Forest Trends’ Supply Change project tracks progress on 579 public commitments from companies around the world who have pledged to remove forest destruction from their supply chains. These businesses depend on the “big four” agricultural commodities – palm oil, wood products, soy, and cattle – that are found in nearly every aisle of the grocery store but are also responsible for more than a third of tropical deforestation each year.
