INFORM is a decision-support platform that aims to help private and public institutions across sectors worldwide to reduce deforestation risks associated with their supply chains and investments.


Using criteria-based assessments and probability calculations, INFORM will assess whether a product is linked to deforestation. Users will be provided with a simple risk assessment related to their procurement or investment, as well as guidance on how to reduce business risk. INFORM aims to enable companies and financial institutions to bypass the prohibitive costs of supply chain assessments and to focus audits in areas that carry the highest risks. For governments it will enable better environmental policymaking and
 improve public procurement, and help achieve commitments on sustainability and zero deforestation.
