Deforestation and forest degradation account for approximately 10-15% of the world's greenhouse gas emissions. Addressing deforestation is therefore critical for meeting international ambitions to prevent dangerous climate change. CDP's forests program acts on behalf of 365 signatory investors, with US $22 trillion in assets, who wish to understand how companies are addressing their exposure to deforestation risks.

CDP will host our first ever water & forests workshop for companies and investors on April 12, 2017 in NYC. We hope you can join us to learn from fellow companies and subject matter experts about best practices in corporate water stewardship and managing deforestation commodities, such as palm oil and soy. This is a free event that will focus on water in the morning and forests in the afternoon.
