Intelligence for
deforestation-free finance

Launching next quarter
What is Trase Finance

Trase Finance brings unprecedented transparency to the hundreds of billions of dollars that directly and indirectly finance tropical deforestation each year.

This enables financial institutions to improve the sustainability of their portfolios. And it allows civil society and governments to monitor progress and better hold to account those failing to act.

Trase Finance builds on Trase's unique supply chain mapping capabilities, linking the trade of commodities that drive deforestation to financial markets worldwide.
