Globally, only a few commodities drive majority of emissions from land use change and deforestation. To avert the climate crisis, Aidenvironment’s research focuses on driving the sustainable sourcing and production practices of these commodities.

Our work grouped into major commodities

Aidenvironment’s research and analysis covers commodities that have the largest environmental footprint in the world. Increased sustainability in these commodity sectors has compelling potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We have seen that improved information access on commodity supply chains enable companies and stakeholders to take positive climate action.

Palm oil
Aidenvironment aims to eliminate palm oil-linked deforestation with what is considered the largest dataset of oil palm concession maps, mill / refinery locations and corporate ownership data.
Pulp and paper
As tropical rainforests are being converted into industrial tree plantations, Aidenvironment aims to stimulate the sustainable transformation of pulp and paper companies through its projects.
Aidenvironment directly engages with major soy producers and traders and monitors companies’ deforestation footprints through geospatial datasets, local intelligence and publicly available sources.
Cattle drives 80 percent of Amazon deforestation. Aidenvironment projects aims to influence increased sustainability in the cattle sector by monitoring the supply chains of the largest meat processors.
Aidenvironment’s research has increased awareness on farmland markets and its underlying sustainability and financial risks.
The leather industry has strong links with cattle-driven deforestation in Brazil. Aidenvironment and its partners aim to increase transparency and drive sustainable practices in leather sourcing.
