No-Deforestation & No-Conversion Supply Chains Advisory

All businesses rely on natural resources. Safeguarding the integrity of forests and forested landscapes is critical to ensuring your business model can continue in a changing world.

The Forests, Land and Agriculture (FLAG) sector accounts for up to approx. 1/4 of global GHG emissions - and is the single largest driver of deforestation and land conversion.

In their intact state, forests play a vital role in drawing down carbon from the atmosphere and keeping it locked up.

Being at the forefront of nature-based project development, we support companies in developing and implementing No-deforestation and No-conversion strategies and commitments and guide companies to ensure and report on their performance against made pledges.

South Pole is a participant in the Accountability Framework Initiative (AFi) Delivery Partner Programme. In consultation with the AFi, South Pole offers services to support companies in applying the Accountability Framework.
