Voluntary corporate commitments



In the past, governments, companies, and NGOs made common declarations and moratoria to reduce and halt deforestation in supply chains. Several companies have made commitments to address forest degradation in their supply chains. These commitments often focus on specific commodities within their supply chains and ecosystems. The commitments are voluntary and monitored by the companies themselves or through certification schemes. The implementation of effective monitoring mechanisms and strong public-private alliances strengthen deforestation-free practices.

How do European livestock farmers know whether forests have been cleared for the cultivation of soy in their feed? So far, feed manufacturers have pretended to be unable to take responsibility for their supply chains. Tracing back the origin of the soy through many intermediaries along the global supply chain was too difficult for them. In the future, however, an EU law could require companies to take responsibility for their global supply chains.
