Supply chains don’t feature heavily on the agenda at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change talks taking place in Bonn (COP23). But if the global community is going to achieve the ambition set in the Paris Agreement, the deforestation risks around the trade in agricultural commodities from tropical forest zones must be addressed.
New data tracking palm oil exports from Indonesian ports is now available on Trase, an online platform providing supply chain transparency for key agricultural commodities .
The new data is the latest development for the Trase platform, kick-starting a new area of work on palm oil in Indonesia, following the release of data on soy and cattle in Latin America.
