Halting Deforestation

July 12, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Greening the Global Shopping Cart

EDF+Business is proud to present the Greening the Global Shopping Cart webinar series.

A webinar with Katie Anderson, EDF.

Deforestation is a huge driver of greenhouse gas emissions globally, with just four commodities—beef, soy, palm oil and pulp and paper—accounting for about 1.7 gigatons of emissions each year. Many organizations and companies have set deforestation commitments, but we are still seeing increases in deforestation. What is causing this discrepancy and how can NGOs, governments and companies collaborate to see real impact at scale? Katie Anderson, EDF, will review the opportunities associated with collective action around jurisdictional approaches for beef and soy in Brazil and give companies a helpful path forward for engagement.
