International commodity trade's contribution to tropical deforestation
Value of global trade in agricultural commodities
“Trase, with the collaboration of the European Forest Institute, has done a very important job of compiling and processing data from the main tropical countries producing soybeans (and other products at risk of deforestation), making it possible today to estimate the risk of deforestation for most soybean imports in France.”
“TRASE has been an incredibly powerful tool in developing an understanding of where UK soy originates, and has been a critical resource in our efforts to drive forward progress in the supply chain”
“Trase Finance breaks new ground with quantitative measures of deforestation risk for entire sectors, building on Trase’s pioneering supply chain maps. This is an exciting development for the financial sector.”
“Trase has been a breakthrough in transparency in international commodity supply chains. With the help of Trase data as a starting point, we’re much closer to connecting the destruction of forests to the end users of commodities in near real-time, an unimaginable feat only a few years ago”
