Climate Change - Deforestation

<- Environmental Issues Home


Only three proposals have surfaced so far about deforestation. One, a resubmission to Domino’s Pizza from NYSCRF, earned 23.1 percent in 2017 and 26.2 percent in 2016. It asks that the company “develop a comprehensive, cross-commodity policy and implementation plan to eliminate deforestation and related human rights issues from its supply chain.” NYSCRF has proposed the same resolution at US Foods Holding for the first time.

At Bunge, NYSCRF keeps up the same theme, asking for a report “providing quantitative metrics on supply chain impacts on deforestation, including progress on time-bound goals for reducing such impacts.”
