Accountability Systems and Reporting

Aidenvironment aims to reduce pressure on forests from agricultural commodity supply chains by influencing and acting as an accountability system for companies in the agriculture sector. Through remote satellite imagery, supply chain analysis, partnerships with on-the-ground approach, and millions of datasets from Aidenvironment’s collaboration with CSOs, the Forest Team’s projects use robust data to provide actionable information to companies, investors, media and NGO stakeholders. Through data driven and in-depth company and supply chain analysis, Aidenvironment urges the private sector and its investors to incorporate deforestation into their decision-making processes.

Expertise

Our expertise is rooted in a deep understanding of forest-risk supply chains and their climate impact. Aidenvironment’s Intelligence System has extensive data sets on the soy, cattle and palm oil supply chains and farmland markets, with groundwork developed for the pulp and paper sector.

Our approach

Aidenvironment’s projects and services are enabled by a focused deep-dive approach on data analysis, with the following building blocks:

Multi-faceted basis of intelligence building on large datasets: geospatial location data, land use change, corporate structure, land ownership, supply chain relationships, sustainability policies and finance flows;
Smart use of publicly available data for independent and actionable monitoring of land use change and its links to commodity supply chains;
Analysis of supply chain actors’ climate impact on the basis of independent sources and going beyond companies’ self-reporting;
Integration of field investigations and on-the-ground contextual information for a comprehensive analysis and increased accuracy in tracing supply chain linkages
Near real-time monitoring and up-to-date information, including new evidence of deforestation and fires;
Selective scope of most relevant commodities driving deforestation and the most influential actors within selected sectors as levers of change.
