The Collective Effort to End Deforestation: A Pathway for Companies to Raise Their Ambition

Download the document.

In 2020, 687 companies reported through CDP on the steps they are taking to eliminate deforestation from their operations and supply chains. This report looks at data disclosed by 553 companies using or producing seven commodities responsible for the majority of agriculture-related deforestation: palm oil, timber products, cattle products, soy, natural rubber, cocoa and coffee.

These companies’ current governance, strategies and implementation measures are assessed against a series of industry-accepted measures to reduce deforestation, broken down into 15 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and split into six categories. Based on their adoption of the KPIs, companies are also mapped onto a pathway towards deforestation-free markets and a forest-positive future, allowing companies to benchmark against peers and follow in the footsteps of pioneers.
