The companies getting it wrong on deforestation: Findings from the 2019 Forest 500 report

The Forest 500 2019 annual report finds that despite ambitious commitments to end deforestation in agricultural commodity supply chains by 2020, the lack of any action by almost half of the most influential companies and financial institutions in forest-risk supply chains is preventing sector-wide change. Learn more about the findings from this report and why company action is essential to achieving global forest protection in this interview with Sarah Rogerson from the Global Canopy Programme.

buena noche. es muy importante la labor de que las empresas y el sector financiero tomen conciencia de los suministros que usan en la cadena de producción para evitar la deforestación. pero como bien se evidencia solo la mitad cumple con los compromisos para el tema de la deforestación, se evidencia que en estos momentos se va, lentamente trabajando para contribuir con el medio ambiente, por lo cual se debe trabajar con los legisladores para que se imparten directrices claras para la conservación del medio ambiente.
