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.preview the tool
Trase Finance shows how global investors in commodity trading companies will find their exposure to deforestation risks become increasingly visible, as transparency improves.
Financing of companies involved in the production and trade of commodities like palm oil by regional banks can indirectly expose investors and debt holders to deforestation.
Whatever the virtues of low-cost passive funds, they hide the connection between investors and a range of social and environmental impacts, including deforestation.
Key features coming next quarter:
