      "Industrial Agriculture and Forestry are important for the production of a diverse range of soft commodities such as palm oil, soy, beef, coffee, tea, cacao, cotton, tobacco, rubber and timber. Industrial developments in these areas are positive for economic growth in certain countries but may have adverse impacts such as deforestation, loss of biodiversity, poor labour conditions and conflicts with local communities. To address these concerns and to promote sustainable production, Deutsche Bank introduced a set of guiding principles for clients active in these areas. In 2014, Deutsche Bank has signed the New York Forest Declaration of the United Nations. The objective of the signatories is to support all endeavours to cut natural forest loss in half by 2020 and to end it by 2030. As a member of the Banking Environment Initiative and signatory to the Soft Commodities Compact10 we are committed to help achieve zero net deforestation by 2020 in the palm oil, timber, soy and beef sectors."
