New Report Examines The Level To Which Retailers Are Tackling Deforestation

A new study by Global Canopy has found that European retailers 'still have a lot of work to do' when it comes to making firm commitments to tackle deforestation.

The Forest 500 ranking features 350 companies with the most exposure to tropical deforestation-risk worldwide. Each company is assessed on their approach to deforestation and associated human rights, based on the information published by the company on its website.

Just six of the 14 European supermarket groups assessed in the Forest 500 have made a public commitment to ending deforestation across all of their supply chains, Global Canopy said. In addition, none of the supermarket groups meet Forest 500’s definition of a 'strong commitment' – to be free from deforestation, conversion of all natural ecosystems, and free from associated human rights abuses such as labour rights, rights to land, and related issues.
