    Goals / Remit

    Global Canopy brings unprecedented transparency to the supply chains of commodities that drive the majority of deforestation worldwide and to the trillions of dollars in investment and lending that finance them.
    1.We identify and rank the 500 companies and financial institutions with the greatest links to deforestation worldwide.
    2.We enable leading companies, financial institutions and governments to identify and tackle deforestation in their supply chains and investments.
    3.We improve accountability by shining a light on powerful players that are failing to act on this critical issue.
    Over the last 5 years, with partners we have created a set of ground-breaking open data platforms, including:
    1. Forest 500 - identifying, assessing and ranking the 500 power-brokers of deforestation.
    2. Trase - for the first time linking consumer markets to deforestation on the ground at scale.
    3. ENCORE - a unique approach for financial institutions to estimate dependencies on nature.

    Communication activities

    We are working with the Consumer Goods Forum’s Soy Buyers Coalition (including major UK retailers) to use Trase data to identify where the biggest deforestation risks lie in their supply chains.

    We actively participate in the Amsterdam Declaration Partners’ meetings, the UK Roundtable on Sustainable Soy and the EU’s Consultation on its Action Plan for forests.

    Examples of recent communication activities include:
    1) Inputs to UK Environment Bill consultation on due diligence and deforestation https://globalcanopy.org/insights/publication/uk-environment-bill-joint-ngo-briefing-on-due-diligence-and-deforestation/
    2) Trase Yearbook 2020 https://insights.trase.earth/yearbook/highlights/traders-and-markets/
    3)Forest500 annual report published in January 2021 ranking companies and financial institutions on their deforestation policies:https://forest500.org/publications/time-change-delivering-deforestation-free-supply-chains
    4)Research into illegal soy in Brazil published in June 2020: https://www.globalcanopy.org/press-centre/eu-soy-imports-linked-illegal-deforestation-brazil

    We are a member of the Expert Group/Multi-Stakeholder Platform on Protecting and Restoring the World’s Forests”. The meeting will focus on Deforestation and Forest Degradation.

    Trase (a core programme of Global Canopy) also provides support to the Amsterdam Declaration Partnership government members on the policy area above and provide relevant data - this includes https://commodityfootprints.earth/.
