      "The benefits which trees give to human beings, particularly to men, are numerous. The flower production and nectar in eucalyptus as well as the pollen found in oaks, pines and poplars are another example of the contributions which the trees make for insects like bees, and in an indirect way, for men. The reduction of the effect of the wind is another contribution. Its protecting effect goes up to a distance equivalent to 20 times its own height, which contributes to withhold dust particles and pollutants. However, one of the most significant aspects due to its magnitude is the uptake of carbon dioxide (CO2) present in the air which contributes to the reduction of its atmospheric content. It is estimated that trees do an annual uptake of around 37 tones of CO2 per hectare."

How we assess the Forest 500

To ensure deforestation free supply chains, companies need to adopt and implement timebound and measurable policies for forest risk commodities.

All assessments use policies published on company websites, some links may have changed or been removed since the time of assessment.
