What is it?

ForestMind is a new UK project focused on establishing a neutral and trusted entity that delivers actionable insight and support to validate and change sourcing decisions, and guide supplier development to reduce deforestation.

It will combine knowledge and expertise from agricultural and sustainability specialists, Earth Observation data, and isotopic analysis to help food retailers and producers eliminate products that have caused deforestation from our food supply chains.

Its initial focus is to enable commodity-sourcing organizations to understand and act on deforestation risks in supply chains globally. Beyond the initial project, it also plans to address broader environmental and social risks for all parties within the supply chain.
