This briefing note uses data from the Forest 500 to look at the prevalence of certification in company sustainability commitments and to assess whether certification-based commitments are helping to protect remaining tropical forests. It finds that 80% of companies with sustainability commitments use FSC or PEFC certification and looks at how those companies can improve policies to ensure tropical forests are protected.
