Our Deforestation Index combines satellite data of net forest loss with a spatial resolution of 430m² with a qualitative assessment of how well forests are protected to pinpoint areas where deforestation risks are greatest.

The Deforestation Index can help you:

  • Screen and compare operations and supply chains for forest loss risks
  • Understand the areas that pose most threat to achieving internal targets and international benchmarks
  • Align corporate strategy with global standards like the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
