CRR Webinar: Which companies are most exposed to deforestation-driven fires in their supply chains?

Expanding agricultural production was one of the main factors behind the Brazilian tropical fires that shocked the world in 2019. Indonesia also endured extensive blazes, often linked to deforestation for palm oil. NGOs, politicians and celebrities called for action to stop fires, and the world will be watching again in 2020. 

Aidenvironment and its CRR partners held a webinar discussing the main drivers of the fires in Brazil and Indonesia in 2019, the actors involved, the political context, and the risks for investors. We also looked ahead at the risks involved with the upcoming fires season expected this summer.
