As businesses face new and critical global challenges posed by COVID-19, the importance of corporate action to protect and restore the world’s forests is clear. This means working with nature, protecting vital natural resources and seizing opportunities to act.
2020 was slated to be the
year to end corporate-driven deforestation, but
the majority of companies failed on key commitments. We cannot continue on the current pathway of
deforestation if we want to avoid risks to people, planet and business.
Measuring and managing these risks is crucial in ensuring resilient business
and supply chains and thriving economies and communities.
Together, we can work towards transformational change. Companies have the power to drive this change at scale.
