Unearthing Environmental Risk in Timber Supply Chains Using Public Records

07/06/23 3 minute read

With the implementation of the EU Deforestation Regulation and expansion of the Lacey Act in the United States, importers of timber and other forest products must trace their supply chains as far back as possible to the point of origin. This is no easy task, but public records can do a lot to help companies map their supply chains and understand where they are exposed to environmental risk along the way.

Join us on Thursday, July 27 at 11:00 am EDT for a masterclass on using public records on deforestation due diligence in Brazil.
We will discuss:
  • What kinds of public records can be used for supply chain due diligence
  • How to combine public records from different sources to flag environmental risk
  • How corporate records and trade data can be used for network-based risk analysis
  • A case study analyzing the 2021 Ricardo Salles illicit timber and corruption scandal
