Protect and restore forests and natural ecosystems
Forests and natural ecosystems store vast amounts of carbon. They are complex webs of animals and plants, provide essential services embody cultural values, and have many economic and social benefits for indigenous people and communities worldwide.
Our aim is for agricultural and forest commodities to be produced and sourced from landscapes without deforestation, and for forests and natural ecosystems to protected and restored. Achieving this is more than just a technical challenge, as local communities, land users and governments all have a stake in how natural ecosystems are managed. So, we provide technical expertise and on-the-ground experience to help stakeholders in production landscapes develop practical, socially equitable and inclusive solutions.
We support producer companies and governments to conduct land use planning assessments, and design management and monitoring plans for individual sites and larger landscapes. We also work with downstream companies to understand deforestation risks in their supply chains, and their suppliers to protect forests and natural ecosystems.
