Deforestation Free Investment Options

Powered by As You Sow


Deforestation and degradation of vast swaths of land for commodities such as palm oil, pulp and paper, cattle, soy, timber, and rubber is responsible for almost one quarter of all global greenhouse gas emissions and for unprecedented species extinction.

Simultaneously, the occupation of vast areas of land for industrial plantation agriculture is a leading cause of violent land conflicts due to its frequent dispossession and displacement of local and indigenous communities.

Investment Risks

Deforestation isn’t just bad for the planet. Increasingly, it’s risky business. Companies engaged in deforestation, land grabbing and human rights violations expose themselves and their shareholders to significant financial risks from stalled business operations, reputational damage, and legal liabilities.
