How Supply Chain Mapping can reduce deforestation risk

How Supply Chain Mapping can reduce deforestation risk

Material supply chains can be global and complex. Most brands can trace back to the manufacturer but do not have full transparency of the upstream supply chain, where a number of challenges could be hidden.

One of the most high-profile environmental challenges for brands is illegal deforestation. Leather, rubber, wood and paper derivatives are materials that can be associated with deforestation.

The most effective way to manage the challenge of deforestation in your supply chain is to understand where you are sourcing from and how much. Understanding the challenge is the first step to establishing an achievable deforestation policy – against which you can measure and report your progress.

The Eurofins | BLC Supply Chain Mapping service can help you to better understand your supply chain, by identifying where you are sourcing from. The Eurofins | BLC Supply Chain Mapping tool uses 20 years of deforestation data to quantify the risk of deforestation that may be occurring in your supply chain and to predict areas that may be vulnerable in the future.

Be confident that you have supply chain transparency and that you are not sourcing from areas of illegal deforestation.
