Greenpeace Slams Nestlé Over 'Deforestation-Free' Claims

In a statement on its website, Nestlé claims that it has used a combination of tools, 'including certification, supply chain mapping, on-the-ground verification and satellite imagery from the Starling system' to achieve its zero-deforestation goals – a year ahead of the original 2020 goal.

The Starling system is the result of a collaboration between Airbus, the Earthworm Foundation and Nestlé.
