The world lost 12 million hectares of tropical forests in 2018, according to Global Forest Watch, and nearly 40 percent of deforestation is commodity-driven.

Commodities like palm oil, cocoa, beef and soy may change hands dozens of times from the moment they’re harvested until they end up in candy bars, toothpaste or baby formula, making it nearly impossible to track deforestation in products. Today, it is finally possible for a company or bank of any size to analyze and manage deforestation risk using GFW Pro.
