The event

This side event will showcase the potential for an innovative new supply-chain transparency platform (Trase - Transparency for Sustainable Economies) to help build the cross-sectoral alliances needed to deliver a deforestation-free economy. Trase utilises huge untapped datasets to see inside complex global commodity supply chains. Aiming to tackle the urgent problem of unsustainable forest conversion for agricultural commodities, Trase reveals the links between production landscapes and specific traders, manufacturers, retailers and investors worldwide. In doing so, it provides information to track the implementation of deforestation-free commitments from private and public actors. The side event explores how an increased transparency of supply chains can catalyse improvements in investment, procurement and production practices as well as strategic development planning by governments and sub-national jurisdictions.
