STA Members Author New Article on Corporate Zero Deforestation

The current edition of the European Tropical Forest Research Network (ETFRN) News includes an article from STA member organizations INOBU and Earth Innovation Institute (EII), authored by forest and agriculture experts John Watts, Silvia Irawan, and Joko Arif (INOBU) in collaboration with Daniel Nepstad and Joao Shimada (EII).

The article affirms that "Corporate zero deforestation commitments are most effective if they are developed and implemented collaboratively — instead of unilaterally — through partnerships with farmers and local governments, and if they support sustainability certification systems such as RSPO and RTRS, instead of trying to replace them."
