Forest 500 Data

Over 200,000 data points are available to download for each year, including scores for all indicators, quotes and links used in the assessments. General information on the companies and financial institutions is also included, such as operating countries, sectors they operate in, and at which stages of the supply chain they are exposed to deforestation risk. 

In 2022 as we re-selected the 350 companies and 150 financial institutions, the selection data for producer and trader countries has also been updated.
