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 work with forests acts on behalf of over 525 signatory investors, with US$96 trillion in assets, who wish to understand how companies are addressing their exposure to deforestation risks.
70% of 1,500 companies with high impact on forests fail to provide data on their impact
Companies report up to US$30.4 billion in losses due to deforestation risks
Of the 306 companies that reported data: 24% are showing no or limited action to reduce deforestation
