Company Data

Despite a growing number of companies adopting commitments to address deforestation in commodity supply chains, commitments remain sparse among the most influential companies, and weak in their capacity to limit ongoing deforestation. Policy uptake among laggard companies and implementation from companies with policies has been too slow to eliminate deforestation in company supply chains by the global 2020 deforestation targets.

Financial Institution data

Strong policies from a small - and slowly growing - number of leading financial institutions are yet to be matched by their peers. Strong deforestation policies from financial institutions need to require companies to protect priority forest types, yet few financial institutions have policies that require or encourage protection of these landscapes.

Countries

To select the Forest 500, Global Canopy first indentifies the key countries producing and trading forest-risk commodities. In order to focus on these regions when selecting the powerbrokers.

To identify key producing countries the following factors were considered: forest type, overall forest cover, extent and rate of forest loss, change in average deforestation rate, amount of remaining natural forest, amount of intact forest landscape loss, and forest-risk commodity production quantities. To identify key trading countries total value of forest-risk commodity imports, and the importance of trading partnerships with each of the key producing companies were considered.
