Online nur Kännchen – Deforestation-free supply chains part I - What is deforestation and what does coffee have to do with it?

Forests cover one third of the earth's surface, are habitats for many of the known animal and plant species, and are important climate protectors. They also provide a livelihood for more than 1.6 billion people. But forests are under threat. Every four seconds, forest the size of a soccer field disappears. 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 seventh edition of Online nur Kännchen, this time now as a double episode, we would like to take a closer look at the concepts of deforestation-free supply chains and relate them to coffee. Afterwards, we will offer a first overview on options for action for companies to combat deforestation. About two weeks later (date and invitation to follow), we would like to deepen further these topics together with you.
