Video: In the eight years since companies and governments came together under the New York Declaration on Forests committing to end deforestation by 2020, we have instead seen a continued rise in deforestation rates. To meet net zero goals and ensure a climate resilient future, companies need to quickly accelerate systems and processes to manage their impacts on forests.
In this webinar, our expert panel discussed company best practice to end deforestation across agricultural and forestry value chains and where corporate ambition and action currently stand according to a new report evaluating company progress against the Accountability Framework, using CDP 2021 Forests data.
The session featured the latest case studies showing how companies have integrated leading practices into their business. The panellists for this session were:
Juliana Lopes, ESG, communications and compliance director, Amaggi
Katerina Elias-Trostmann, head of ESG and sustainability, Brazil, BNP Paribas
Leah Samberg, lead scientist, global policy, Rainforest Alliance
Thomas Maddox, global director, forests and land, CDP
Moderated by Innovation Forum's Ian Welsh.
