Sleeping giants of deforestation: the companies, countries and financial institutions with the power to save forests. The 2016 Forest 500 results and analysis

The third annual Forest 500 report asks the fundamental question: to what degree are the most influential actors in the global palm oil, soya, cattle product and timber product supply chains committing to address deforestation? Through a systematic analysis of the 250 companies, 150 financial institutions and 50 national and sub-national jurisdictions selected for inclusion in the Forest 5001, this report reveals not only whether these power brokers have established policies to address deforestation, but also whether their policies are robust enough to produce meaningful change on the ground.
