Forests cover one third of the earth's surface, are the habitat for many of the known animal and plant species and important climate protectors. They are also the basis of life for more than 1.6 billion people. But forests are under threat. Every four seconds, forests the size of a football field disappear. About half of the global forest destruction affects the tropical forests at the equator, one of the most important cultivation zones for agricultural raw materials such as palm oil, soy, rubber, coffee and cocoa.

In the eighth edition of Online nur Kännchen and the second part of our small series on the topic of "Deforestation-free supply chains", we would like to show options for action for companies to deal with and counteract deforestation in their supply chain. We will present different approaches, such as sustainability standards, corporate due diligence and landscape approaches.

Date: Wednesday, 03.11.2021 from 14:00 to 15:00 hrs.

Topic: Deforestation-free supply chains part 2 - Options for action for companies - concepts and instruments
