Ground-truthing to improve due diligence on human rights in deforestation-risk supply chains

6 members

Summary

Industrial agriculture is routinely linked to deforestarion, land grabbing and human rights abuses, bearing reputational and operational risk to invested companies. This collaboration looks to bridge the information gap between company policy and on-the-ground reality.  

Business case

The Forest Peoples Programme’s discussion paper highlights how ground-truthing offers major potential to bridge the information gap, thereby preventing harmful impacts on human rights and reducing the likelihood of investors being exposed to financial risks from human rights abuses.

An important discussion for parties who seek greater transparency from supply chains and greater accountability from the companies involved.
