“The Chain: New Research Tool May Support Banks and Investors in Assessing Their Exposure to Material Deforestation Risks in SE Asia” – Chain Reaction Research – October 20, 2016

On October 20, 2016 Chain Reaction Research announced the launch of  the Forests and Finance research tool, a coalition effort of campaign and research organizations, including Chain Reaction Research partner Profundo, Rainforest Action Network and TuK.

 It “examines 50 companies engaged in the four tropical forest-risk sectors in Southeast Asia:  palm oil; pulp and paper; rubber and timber.  While not all of these companies are necessarily involved directly in deforestation, they may be engaged in other environmental and human rights issues that heighten material risk exposure.”
