- On the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, we invited Brazilian NGO Imaflora to share their perspectives on the key role that indigenous peoples play in protecting forests and other native ecosystems; and to talk about their award-winning work that helps consumers identify and value sustainable forest products.
- The European Union’s long-awaited Communication on Stepping up EU Action to Protect and Restore the World’s Forests brings a welcome dose of common sense in a world where satellite data showing evidence of deforestation is being questioned.
- With six months to go, the countdown to the 2020 deadline for company action to tackle deforestation is sounding ominously like a doomsday clock. The evidence from the natural world screams for urgent action, with icecaps melting faster than expected and record temperature highs in Europe.
- The UK Government has launched its new Global Resource Initiative Taskforce, which has a remit to work with companies, and governments in producer and intermediary companies to establish the UK as a leader on supply chain sustainability and reduce deforestation.

Bringing unprecedented transparency to the commodity supply chains which run from forest landscapes to consumers worldwide
The Finance Sector
Following the trillions of dollars in loans and investments linked to deforestation, and enabling better decision-making on natural capital by financial institutions
Financing Sustainable Landscapes
Supporting forward-thinking governments in key forest regions to secure investment to protect forests, boost agricultural productivity and improve water security
