The Forest Footprint Disclosure Report: Improving procurement practices and reducing forest risk
The fourth annual Forest Footprint Disclosure (FFD) Report revealed that 100 companies have voluntarily disclosed their forest footprint, an increase of almost 15% compared to last year; however, the gap between the leaders of the forest risk commodity sectors and their peers is ever growing. Each year FFD asks the world’s largest companies to disclose their impact on forests based on their use of five commodities: soy, palm oil, timber and pulp, cattle products, and biofuels.
Join this session to:
- Find out the results and outcomes of the FFD report
- Hear how companies have improved their forest risk and procurement practices
- Learn what the future of forest footprint reporting is and how you can take part
This year, the FFD report saw an increase in discloser numbers as well as a widening geographic reach to Mexico and Japan. FFD also welcomed significant improvements from companies including Boots UK, Next, Kingspan Group PLC, and Whitbread Group PLC and leadership from New Britain Palm Oil Ltd., British Sky Broadcasting, Marfrig Group, and Prime Asia Leather Corporation.
