Forest IQ is a powerful new data platform for financial institutions that for the first time brings together aligned, best-in-class, and actionable data on how more than 2,000 major companies are addressing their links to deforestation.

Backed by a partnership of NGOs with decades of experience on deforestation, Forest IQ assesses companies and financial institutions against three core metrics: on exposure, materiality and reported performance – that have been developed in close consultation with major financial institutions. These indicators map to a large number of datasets, enabling banks and investors to undertake in-depth analysis and more effective engagement with high-risk companies.

The launch event offered insights on how data can enable financial institutions to identify risks and opportunities across the commodity value chain – and help them to deliver deforestation-free portfolios. A recording of the launch is now available.

Forest IQ was created by Global Canopy, the Stockholm Environment Institute and The Zoological Society of London (ZSL), with a working group of 10 financial institutions, including banks and asset managers.
